What Should I Know About Vehicular Homicide?
In Iowa, vehicular homicide refers to unintentionally taking someone’s life while operating a vehicle. There are three categories of vehicular homicide. They include:
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Driving recklessly
- Driving while drag racing
The victim can be a pedestrian, cyclist or passenger in the vehicle. Failure to stop and render aid after the crash can result in a mandatory minimum sentence for the offender. A conviction also nearly always results in the long-term suspension or revocation of your driver’s license.
