A conviction of manslaughter has been overturned for a person who was accused of killing a passenger in her vehicle in a crash. According to an article from August 27, a woman had been convicted of involuntary manslaughter after she was accused of reckless driving in 2012. At the time, the 25-year-old woman had been driving 75 mph in a 35 mph zone when she collided with a school bus and telephone pole. Her boyfriend, a 16-year-old at the time, was killed in the accident. He was not wearing his seatbelt.
Normally, crashes like this wouldn't necessarily result in convictions being overturned, but her case is special. According to the story, the woman's vehicle was part of the GM recall for a faulty ignition switch.
