Responding to criminal traffic crash investigations involving death or serious physical injury.
The Vehicular Homicide Team is made up of 5 deputy district attorneys with over 60 years of combined prosecutorial experience. The team responds 24/7/365 to criminal traffic crash investigations involving death or serious physical injury. We assist law enforcement personnel with legal issues in preparation for criminal prosecution of vehicular crimes including Manslaughter, Criminally Negligent Homicide, DUII, and Assault. During the investigation and criminal prosecution, we partner with our Victim’s Assistance Office to help guide victim families through this unfamiliar landscape.
In the aftermath of a crash, we work with detectives, crash reconstruction teams, first responders, medical personnel, and other experts during the investigation and prosecution of these crimes. The Vehicular Homicide team, in conjunction with our law enforcement partners, engage in regular trainings to help ensure a consistent county-wide response to these devastating cases.
