Dr. James Corasanti was driving drunk and texting while driving late at night when he struck and killed an 18-year-old girl on a skateboard. He was charged with five felony counts – including second degree manslaughter – but was acquitted last week on everything except a misdemeanor DWI, which means he could end up serving less than a year in jail.
KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) - A 16-year-old girl has been charged with manslaughter, assault and texting while driving in connection with a September 2011 fatality collision. It's a moment the young driver can never take back, and one prosecutors said could have been avoided if she'd just put down her phone.
The victim's son said his niece, the 10-year-old girl injured in the crash, is recovering and doing well. He suggests having Gannon travel around to high schools in the metro area and talk to kids about the dangers of texting and driving. He believes that's a good way to hold her accountable and spread awareness among young drivers - something he said is most important. Instead, the teen could face up to four years in state prison if convicted of the involuntary manslaughter charge.
