Vehicular homicide is the crime of causing another person’s death through the grossly negligent operation or control of a motor vehicle or vessel.

The penalties for a conviction in a vehicular homicide case include:

Incarceration for up to 10 years
Fines of up to $5,000
Driver’s license revocation

A vehicle accident that resulted in someone’s death will usually be charged as a homicide if the driver of the car was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or the accident involved any type of reckless driving. A case involving DUI can add an additional three to five years to prison sentence.
