Off-duty Pennsylvania cop convicted of fatal DUI charges

An off-duty police officer will serve at least three years in jail for causing an accident that killed a man while she was under the influence of alcohol. The 47-year-old woman was convicted of homicide by vehicle while DUI, aggravated assault by vehicle while DUI, homicide by vehicle, involuntary manslaughter and two counts of DUI. The Pennsylvania resident didn't take a plea bargain since she believed she was not directly to blame for the crash.

Drunk driving, drugged driving trending in opposite directions

A new study indicates that drunk driving and drugged driving are headed in opposite directions. The research by the Governors Highway Safety Association indicates that more drivers were high on drugs in 2016 than were driving under the influence of alcohol.
