I sometimes believe that when it's your time to go, you're gonna go, no matter where you are or what you're doing. A man in the Bronx found that out. His death is considered a homicide, but it was complicated. A man is driving down the road. A hoodlum starts shooting at him. He gets shot in the head. He loses control of his car and it hits a "No Standing" sign. The sign falls down and hits another guy. The thug got away. The man who was shot in the head is going to be fine. The guy hit by the sign died. I'm wondering though: who are they going to charge with the murder? The shooter or the driver?

I'm guessing 2nd degree murder on the shooter as well as attempted murder for shooting the driver.

Depends on the prosecutor, of course. The driver walks, of course. The worse they could charge would be unintentinal manslaugher, I'd think. Getting a verdict would be a bear though.

Just my 0.02
