    Pam will be missed by all who went to Church with her , her Childern and Family. No one can tell when a Deer will cross our path like it did Pams. Accidents do happen and I Pray the right thing will be done on Brent's behalf, Manslaughter is not always the right answer unless Speed

    I don't think that manslaughter would be the cause of this at this time. His blood levels need to be tested and also the speed at the time of the accident. Why was she in the road walking. Did she not get out of the way?

    Does no one believe in accidents anymore. First thing we say is are they going to jail.

    Just before the young lady was hit by Mr. Bradley's truck my brother was traveling on the same road and had to swerved to miss the young lady as she was walking down the middle of his lane.Just prier to the accident someone had hit a deer on the same highway that my brother also ran over because he didn't see it in time .This road is very narrow and dark at night,with no shoulder to walk on.

    Manslaughter charges would be dependent on whether she was in the roadway and depend on his soberness at the time. It's hard to imagine charging a driver with anything if they are sober, at the speed limit, in their lane and a pedestrian is suddenly in their path.

    So will he be charged with manslaughter?
