Vehicular manslaughter occurs when a driver negligently drives a vehicle and in the process directly kills another person.
It covers a wide range of severity and can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances.
If a driver was driving drunk, driving recklessly or speeding when the death occurs, the charges and penalties may be more severe as a result.
