What is vehicular homicide?

The charge of vehicular homicide may arise in any case in whcih a human being is killed by a motor vehicle. The term itself does not imply guilt or criminal offense. The homicide may be deemed accidental, as when the victim unexpectedly dashes infront of an oncoming vehicle; it may be manslaughter - that is rash driving or breaking traffic law on the part of the driver that ends up in death or even murder - when the intent of plowing the vehicle into the person is deliberate.
