Holdings:

The Maryland Court made the following holding:

  • The "overall question" to be decided in manslaughter by motor vehicle cases is stated as: was the conduct of defendant, considering all the factors of the case, such that it amounted to a wanton or reckless disregard for human life.
  • To drive while simply under the influence, to the extent that one is incapable of safely driving his vehicle, is a direct violation of the law. Md. Ann. Code art. 66 1/2, § 11-902(c). When the degree of inebriation is adjudged to render a driver, not only unsafe under § 11-902(c) or even impaired under Md. Ann. Code art. 66 1/2, § 11-902(b), but beyond the most extreme condition of insobriety recognized by law, i.e., intoxicated under Md. Ann. Code art. 66 1/2, § 11-902(a), one who drives thus incapacitated may be inferred to have disregarded human life both wantonly and recklessly. When death ensues, inferentially or directly attributable to a breach of a duty by appellant, derived from his self-induced condition of intoxication, driving while drunk may be sufficient to raise the cause of death from simple negligence to gross negligence, as a factual determination to be made by the fact finder.
