The driver without safety vest faces up to 30 years in jail

The driver of a vehicle without safety vest that hit a group of cyclists this Sunday was turned over to the authorities in the afternoon. The Office of the Prosecutor confirms that the subject is detained and awaiting the delivery of the police report currently produced by the OIJ.

After the analysis of that will be taken the statement to the subject and the application for precautionary measures will be assessed. The 32-year-old man without wearing reflective vest is faces up to 30 years in prison for three wrongful manslaughter and one felony manslaughter offense.

In a possible trial the principal suspect could receive an aggravated penalty for fleeing from the place of the event and if it is verified that the crime committed while it made a mince or had consumed liquor.

At this point the authorities have a major challenge since the subject was tested for hours after the events, so the trace of liquor could disappear. But the one thing is sure that he doesn’t wear any warming vest to keep safety.

Rodrigo Araya, a criminal lawyer, points out that in spite of what happen the subject could not go to prison since there is a possibility of conciliation between the affected parties. This will depend on the decision taken by the relatives of the victims and the woman who was injured and who recovers in the hospital.
