VEHICULAR HOMICIDE

The state must prove more than a failure to use ordinary care. The state must prove:

 

1.    The victim is dead.

2.    The death was caused by a motor vehicle operated by the defendant.

3.    The defendant operated the motor vehicle in a reckless manner likely to cause death or great bodily injury.

 

The state does not have to prove any intent on the driver to injure the victim, just reckless operation.
