Man found guilty of vehicular homicide

Recently, a Rockland County man was found guilty of vehicular homicide in relation to a road rage incident that occurred in 2012, resulting in the death of a local woman.

The 24-year-old man was found guilty after jury deliberations that lasted 8.5 hours. The decision stems from an accident on July 1, 2012, with the man driving a 63-year-old woman from her cousin's home to church. Shortly after merging onto the parkway, he cut in front of an SUV driven by another man.

The other driver, who was 27-years-old at the time, told police that the two drivers engaged in tailgating and lane changes for several miles.

While approaching an exit, the second man slammed on his brakes. It was then that the man swerved and lost control of his vehicle. After hitting the guardrail and bouncing back into the driving lane, his vehicle overturned and struck the second vehicle.

As a result of the accident, the 63-year-old woman was ejected from the vehicle and later died at a local hospital.

The driver of the second vehicle was convicted of vehicular homicide in 2015 and sentenced to six years in prison.

Now that the man has been found guilty, sentencing will take place in May 2016. He faces a possible sentence of five to 10 years.

Passengers and other innocent individuals are often the ones injured in a motor vehicle accident. In some cases, nobody is to blame. In other situations, however, one or more driver acts in a negligent manner that causes the accident, injuries, and possibly leads to death.
