The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) defines vehicular manslaughter as “the unlawful killing of a human being without malice aforethought, in the driving of a vehicle.”
Under state law, there are different types of vehicular manslaughter charges—“vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated” and “gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.” Violating either of these laws can lead to a lengthy jail term.
