The incident happened at approximately 1 a.m. on a day in late March. According to witnesses, a white vehicle slammed into the back of a red vehicle stopped at a red light.

The incident reportedly happened at approximately 8 p.m. According to police, a 41-year-old driver entered an intersection on a red light. As a result, police say, the vehicle she was driving was struck by a pickup truck. While one of the sedan's occupants was able to exit the vehicle, three were trapped inside.

Criminal defense: Parents, son charged with murder in California

Television dramas would have viewers believe that there are families that are composed of several criminal masterminds. While these shows can be entertaining, they are not particularly reflective of reality. However, California police believe that a set of parents and their son murdered a family friend. The defendants in the case are now likely left planning their criminal defense.

The incident that led to the arrest happened on a day in early February. According to reports, a 19-year-old man and his 47-year-old father allegedly beat a 31-year-old man in a hotel. The pair then pushed the man onto the sidewalk using a wheelchair supplied by the teenager's 40-year-old mother.

Never consent to a search

You’re pulled over by the police on a routine traffic violation. It all seems so simple, and you know you were speeding. You hand over your license and registration, and the officer asks you nicely, “Do you mind if I take a look inside your vehicle?”

That innocent sounding request is anything but. You may feel like you have nothing to hide, and maybe a little guilty for speeding. But there is no reason to ever allow a search of your car under any circumstances. There is no benefit to providing consent and no penalty for refusing it.

In fact, a man is now suspected of vehicular manslaughter after he was allegedly involved in an incident involving a pedestrian.

Police say that the incident happened at approximately 8:15 p.m. on a day in March. Reports accused a 29-year-old man of driving at a high rate of speed.

The unexpected death of a young person who seems to have had a long life to look forward to is always a tragedy. The desire for answers following such a loss is completely understandable. However, in many cases, authorities, surviving loved ones and members of the community want more than just answers; in some cases, they also want someone to blame. In fact, a California man faces drug charges following the death of a Marine.

The incident that led to the arrest happened in Jan. 2017. Reports indicate that an unnamed Marine was discovered -- unresponsive -- in his room. Officials claim that he was found close to a computer chair and was wearing headphones, leading them to believe that he had been playing video games. An autopsy revealed that the Marine died as a result of fentanyl toxicity.

Vehicular manslaughter allegation follows fatal California crash

In fact, a man is now charged with vehicular manslaughter after an accident reportedly left another man dead.

The incident that led to the man's arrest happened one evening on a day in late February. According to reports, a 33-year-old driver of a pickup truck crossed the centerline into oncoming traffic. His vehicle allegedly sideswiped a second truck causing the latter to overturn.
