Fatal Ferrari Crash

Law Offices of William W. Bruzzo

An 18-year-old driving a gray Ferrari crashed into a tow truck killing his passenger on December 24, 2009 in Newport Beach, Orange County, California. Luicci Nader, the driver, remains in critical condition and is unable to speak to authorities after having lost control of his vehicle due to excessive speed. No alcohol was involved in the accident; however, Nader still faces possible charges of manslaughter if he recovers.

Under California Penal Code Section 192, manslaughter is “he unlawful killing of a human being without malice.” There are three types of manslaughter- 1) Voluntary, 2) Involuntary, and 3) Vehicular. The above case would most likely fall under the category of vehicular manslaughter as the driver was driving the vehicle while unlawfully speeding and it resulted in the death of his passenger. Because Nader was grossly negligent, he could be convicted for vehicular manslaughter and receive up to 6 years in prison.
