FURIOUS DRIVING. (a)

See Driving Furiously, p. 44, ante.

See Fern, p. 55, ante.

(a) Where death ensues from a collision of carriages. C. J. Best, in his charge to the Wilts grand jury, 1827, stated "that the collision of carriages might be either accidental or from the negligence of one or both of the drivers; and in such case it would be manslaughter. And he included within the term negligence, not only careless driving, but exciting the horses to such speed that they cannot be stopped or properly directed, the knowingly driving unbroken or vicious horses, overloading a coach, or using one that has not sufficient strength, or improper harness."


If a man reckless of consequences, either from mere wantonness, or from an angry feeling against the proprietors of a rival coach, but intentionally drives one carriage against another, and thereby occasions the death of a person in either carriage, that is murder, although the driver did not contemplate so fatal an issue. Disguise it under what terms you will, whether it originates in rivalry, impatience, or mere wanton indifference to the safety of life, such furious driving manifests that atrocious wickedness of disposition which lawyers call malice prepense."
