Lots of interesting things happening in New York’s courts lately. To keep this post short, I'll just cover two of them for now. Here’s a quick rundown:
The Associated Press reported Monday about a Nassau County man who has been charged with vehicular homicide, despite the fact that he was not driving at the time of the October 2012 fatal accident. The man allegedly was intoxicated when the car he was driving struck a car on the Long Island Expressway. He stopped the car down the road in the high occupancy lane, where it was struck by another car. This turned his car sideways. An SUV driver failed to spot the sideways car and hit it, then struck and killed a police officer who had arrived to investigate. The guy who started it all was allegedly leaning against a guardrail at the time the officer was killed.
