Reckless Motorcyclist Cause Death

Law Offices of William W. Bruzzo

On April 25 2009 two motorcyclists were on the 241 Toll Road in Orange County going over 100 mph after midnight. One of the motorcyclists Blaise Aaron Meadows crashed into an Alpha Romeo, the driver Andrew Parker later died due to blunt force trauma. Meadows was taken to the hospital while the other motorcyclist Daniel Cody Burkett left the scene. Meadows pled guilty to one felony count of vehicular manslaughter (Penal Code Section 192) and will be sentenced on July 30, 2010. Burkett will be arraigned on February 16 and is being charged with one count vehicular manslaughter by unlawful act, gross negligence (Penal Code Section 192), one misdemeanor count of reckless driving (Vehicle Code Section 23103) and a sentencing enhancement for fleeing the scene of a crime. The sentencing enhancement adds more time to his prison term but is not considered a charge. The gross negligence specification to the vehicular manslaughter charge could be for driving over 100mph.
