Vehicular manslaughter may be charged when a driver causes an accident (either by violating a traffic law or by exercising negligence or “gross negligence”) and the accident causes the death of another person.

 Manslaughter - California Criminal Defense Attorneys, Involuntary, Voluntary, Vehicular, Felony
Manslaughter is a homicide committed without reason or justification but distinguished from murder by the absence of the element of malice aforethought.
Involuntary manslaughter usually refers to an unintentional killing that results from recklessness or criminal negligence, or from an unlawful act that is a misdemeanor or low-level felony (such as DUI).
The usual distinction from voluntary manslaughter is that involuntary manslaughter (sometimes called "criminally negligent homicide") is a crime in which the victim's death is unintended.

 Legal Definition of Manslaughter
MANSLAUGHTER - The unlawful killing of a human being without malice or premeditation, either express or implied; distinguished from murder, which requires malicious intent.
The distinctions between manslaughter and murder, consists in the following: In the former, though the act which occasions the death be unlawful, or likely to be attended with bodily mischief, yet the malice, either express or implied, which is the very essence of murder, is presumed to be wanting in manslaughter.
Killing a person while doing an act of mere wantonness, is manslaughter as, if a person throws down stones in a coal-pit, by which a man is killed, although the offender was only a trespasser.

 Lawlink NSW: 2. The Murder/Manslaughter Distinction in Unlawful Homicide   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Manslaughter by an unlawful and dangerous act requires the prosecution to prove that death was caused by a sufficient kind of unlawful act and that a reasonable person, engaged in the same conduct as the accused, would have realised that he or she was exposing another to an appreciable risk of serious injury.
Manslaughter by criminal negligence requires the prosecution to prove that the accused’s act or omission causing death involved such a great departure from the standard of care to be expected from a reasonable and prudent person as to deserve to be called a crime against the community generally and conduct deserving punishment.
This is evident from the fact that an accused may be convicted of manslaughter where he or she was indicted for murder, despite the common law rule that prevents conviction for one felony on the charge of another.

 Vehicular Manslaughter - Criminal Defense Attorneys
Vehicular manslaughter charges are often filed in combination with other charges such as drunk driving(DUI) and/or reckless driving.

 DUI & Manslaughter
In these situations, the DUI statutes define it as a felony if the death occurred in the commission of an unlawful act, not amounting to felony with gross negligence; or in the commission of a lawful act that might produce death, in an unlawful manner and with gross negligence.
It is important to remember that in and of itself, evidence of driving while intoxicated will not support an involuntary manslaughter conviction.
In order to convict the defendant of DUI manslaughter based on his impairment, the prosecution must show that while driving impaired, the DUI defendant violated some other rule of the road, and that it was the violation of that rule that caused the accident, and not his impairment alone.
