== == Assuming that the person asking the question has been convicted of vehicular manslaughter, it will go something like this. One definition of manslaughter is that an act that could have been called murder was reduced in the degree of seriousness because the person who did it killed someone through stupidity. Given this circumstance, you're not going to need to worry about auto insurance until you get out of prison. When you do, you'll find it very hard to get auto insurance, and it will be very expensive. This is because a person in this situation has already proven that they are careless enough, or stupid enough, or in some cases just unlucky enough, to have killed someone with a car. This is assuming that the state you live in will ever let you have a drivers license again. == == I will add that such a charge means that the person driving the car, used it as if it were a gun or a knife and caused the death of another human being. AS it was not ( usually ) a pre-mediataed act, it cannot be first degree murder, and therefor it is prosecuted as if it were a second degree murder case, with a lesser sentence upon conviction, than would come from a murder conviction.

My bf was driving 90 mph 4 otha people in the car.The car flipped killing one passenger the roads were wet it was a total accident. Whats going to happen to him Vehicular homicide Murder HELP?

I am not a lawyer, but I would say either vehicular manslaughter or negligent manslaughter--probably vehicular manslaughter because a car is involved. He WAS going 90mph in unsafe conditions, and the prosecutor is going to use it. I am also not a lawyer but a lot will depend on the State You didn't mention if you bf was ticketed If he hasn't been he probably will be The best thing he can do is get a lawyer If he can't afford one he can get an appointed lawyer That would be the best avenue Having an "accident" while driving 90 mph is not an accident, it is pure negligence.
