People v. McCoy

Michigan Court of Appeals

566 N.W.2d 667 (1997)

Facts

Arsner McCoy (defendant) was driving a van 55 miles per hour in a 35 miles-per-hour zone when McCoy struck two sisters, who were going home from school, standing in the middle of the road waiting to cross. After striking the girls, McCoy sped off, weaving in and out of traffic, nearly hitting several cars, and just missing a grandmother and her grandchildren. One sister died from the impact. McCoy was apprehended and charged with involuntary manslaughter and driving-related crimes. Witnesses testified that McCoy was driving much faster than other drivers and that McCoy did not slow or swerve to avoid hitting the girls. A jury convicted McCoy of involuntary manslaughter and other crimes related to the incident. McCoy appealed, arguing that the evidence was insufficient to prove that McCoy was driving in a grossly negligent manner at the time of the accident.
