Driver arrested for car wreck already charged with drug crimes

Police are crediting a motorcyclist's camera for the recent arrest of a North Dakota driver. The driver was allegedly involved in a fatal motorcycle accident, but may have left the scene before police arrived. He is now facing a charge for negligent homicide. This is in addition to at least two previous charges for drug crimes and driving on a suspended license.

The accident occurred on Sept. 8, 2019. According to authorities, a 55-year-old man was riding a motorcycle on the highway at the same time as the 27-year-old driver. The younger man was behind the wheel of a passenger car.

For reasons that are not clear, the driver of the car veered out of his lane and crossed into the motorcyclist's lane. The motorcyclist tried to take evasive action when faced with an unexpected vehicle in his path, but was not able to do so. He died either in the accident or shortly after. Police later viewed footage of the accident that had been recorded on the motorcyclist's dash cam and identified who they believe caused the wreck.

Negligent homicide is a very serious charge that should not be taken lightly. This is especially true when a defendant is also facing charges for other things, such as drug crimes. Defendants in North Dakota should be certain that they understand their rights, the charges against them and any supporting evidence that the prosecution might have. Since this can be fairly difficult, some defendants find it helpful to speak with attorneys who are knowledgeable in criminal law.
