Challenger/Charger Crash

I-5 Closed In Commerce After Crash Leaves 3 Dead « CBS Los Angeles

Quote:
COMMERCE (CBSLA.com) — A fiery crash Saturday morning on I-5 in Commerce that claimed the lives of two men and a woman was started by motorists racing on the freeway, the California Highway Patrol said.

In the aftermath of the crash, Dealio Lockhart, 35, of Whittier was arrested and could face vehicular manslaughter charges, the CHP said. Police were searching Saturday for a second motorist.

The accident on the southbound I-5 at Garfield Avenue took place just after midnight, the CHP said.

Lockhart, driving a Dodge Challenger, was racing a Dodge Charger southbound when he saw a slower vehicle ahead and attempted to get around it at the same time that vehicle was trying to move to the right, the CHP said.

This is why I stopped playing around on the roads with someone else. It's idiotic to me but we're responsible for the other fool's driving.

Charger driver got away but Challenger driver who had been rotting in jail for 3 years since the wreck has just accepted a 22-year plea deal.

22 years for a stupid street race that killed three and hope he serves his time.

They should have stuck with the murder charges. If you run through a crowd swinging a sword, and kill someone, that's murder. Why should speeding down a crowded freeway with a 2-ton hunk of steel be any different? He should never see the outside of a cell again.

It's terrible what happened but, in the eyes of the law, this is more an involuntary manslaughter crime than murder.

Murder is defined as using violent means to deprive another human being of life with malicious intent.

Manslaughter refers to taking the life of another human being but without malice. The most important distinction between murder and manslaughter is the intention in the mind of the killer. Murder is the successful attempt to kill someone whereas manslaughter is the horrible outcome of an unintentional action.

Degrees of Murder and Manslaughter:

Murder ‘“ has three different degrees in the United States. All three degrees still indicate that the killer had the intention of harming or killing his victim in mind before committing the action.
1st degree murder ‘“ refers to any murder that was premeditated
2nd degree murder ‘“ refers to a homicide that took place at the same time as another felony (e.g. killing a bank teller during a robbery)
3rd degree murder ‘“ refers to death that takes place when the original intent was simply to harm the victim

Manslaughter ‘“ has two different categories depending on whether or not the homicidal actions were planned before they took place.

Voluntary manslaughter ‘“ in most commonly awarded when the convicted can prove temporary insanity. It is also used if a person has been provoked to commit actions they wouldn’t normally engage in.

Involuntary manslaughter ‘“ is the charge levied when someone accidentally kills someone else while committing a misdemeanor and had no intention of killing anyone. Throwing a brick through a window and killing someone from the blow is an example. Hitting someone with your car while drinking is one of the most common causes of involuntary manslaughter.

Senseless and sad for the victims! TAKE IT TO THE TRACK if you want to race! There's plenty of race tracks out there to release that urge.

Hope all of the "...was driving in 'Mexico'..." crowd read this. Nothing rankles me more than reading that smug and offensive dodge (pun intended) on social media when idiots publicize their vehicular exploits.
