I doubt it'll go anywhere. "Driving too fast for conditions, yet under the speed limit" is not a reason to charge someone. Technically, if I slide on ice, I was going "too fast for conditions". But I'm not going to get charged with anything if I hit an ice patch and hit another car because my car veered out of control.
I just don't see anything happening.
"Driving too fast for conditions" is a standard and viable charge in California. Usually, the conditions are not ice rather they are rain and fog. In the Central Valley, visibility can be down to almost zero.
I just thought the charge was pretty funny given the circumstances .
It looks like a pretty standard investigation. Now, will the DA bring charges is different question.
"manslaughter" - think about it.
The charge is involuntary manslaughter" and is a misdemeanor not a felony. The Pacific Coast Highway is not a flat and straight piece of road, unlike a coast highway say in Florida. It hugs the Coast Range of mountains and is full of blind curves.
While this is a possibility, charging him with manslaughter .... my only question is, how can they charge Bruce Jenner (a male at the time), who has since changed genders physically and in legal name?
The man that hit the woman no longer exists, technically speaking! :smilewinkgrin:
Well, I stand corrected. You learn something new that you don't like about California every day.
If you drove in California's weather and road condition, you'd understand the charge. For example coastal morning fog can be dangerous. And then there are the blind curves on the mountain and coastal roads.
All that being said, I doubt then DA will bring charges. There was a drunk (not Jenner) involved. But formalities need to be observed. The dead woman's family is suing Jenner for wrongful death.
As was noted in the Teapot Dome scandal where the Secretary of Interior was sent to prison for accepting a bribe but the man giving the bribe was found innocent, "It's hard to convict a million dollars."
Finally someone gets it .
California just legalized and set codes in place to make the motorcycle "lane-splitting" with autos officially a law! It is scary to be driving along and have a truck or car in the next lane and then have a motorcycle speed by between us. And now, what was accepted for a life time, is now a law? Yes, Cali is a weird place, but most of this state is liberal, so what the heck!
