    Failure to yield which led to fatality.

    Anyone know of the implications that this ticket may carry?

    In addition to the traffic offense it could lead to a vehicular homicide charge --some type of homicide where criminally reckless conduct suffices for liability--criminally negligent conduct may not be enough for the homicide, but take a look at the article.

    Thanks for the response - the traffic homicide investigator said no criminal charges would come of the accident, does that mean anything?

    That is probably a good sign for the violator but the prosecutor/district attorney would have the final say on whether a charge is filed.

    You need to consult with an attorney.
