My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of:
Heres the situation:
You are driving your friend home and he lives on a a pitch black road. Its about 12:30 am. All of a sudden you see this kid doing push ups in the middle of the road (I kid you not) and you hit him head first. Now luckily I avoided this potential tragic situation because my friend yelled and alerted me just at the right time. I did not see the kid at all and if it wasnt for my friend, he would likely be dead as I was headed towards him head first. I was obeying every law and doing everything fine. The kid was on the right hand side of a 2 way narrow street, didnt see him because I was focusing on the road straight ahead. However I still woulda hit him because the road was very narrow and my car is pretty wide. My question is thankfully a hypothetical one, but I am still curious: if my friend never alerted me in time, could I be charged with manslaughter or other crimes of this nature?
