Negligent manslaughter charges for driver who left two children dead
Police in Hradec Králové are filing charges of negligent manslaughter against a driver whose unexplained manoeuvres on a side street left two children dead. The 40-year-old driver struck the children, boys aged three and six, and their grandparents while reversing rapidly into a zebra crossing. He then circled the car a number of times in the intersection, eventually crashing into a building. Police have ruled out alcohol or drug use, and witnesses told the website Tyden.cz that he may have been suffering a seizure. If convicted he faces up to six years’ imprisonment.
