As per the NC general statute (20‑141.4.a2-2), if the underlying crime is an infraction or minor misdemeanor like speeding or running a red light, the driver can be charged with misdemeanor death by vehicle (that is if the DA chooses to go pursue it). It would be interesting to see how many continuous hours the driver had been working before the incident and the results of a drug test on the driver. The driver may have just made a horrible mistake but someone should take a look into the company and see what else pops up. This isn't the first member of the public who's life has been taken by someone in an ameratech uniform.
