Defendant in fatal car accident case sentenced for manslaughter

A man from Monmouth County, New Jersey, was recently sentenced before a federal judge for the involuntary manslaughter of a high school principal that occurred in an automobile accident. The car accident occurred when the man drove his vehicle head-on into oncoming traffic and crashed into a car driven by a local school principal. The principal was killed in the accident, and it was determined that the defendant had been under the influence of Ambien at the time of the accident. The man had taken over four times the recommended dose of the drug. The man was sentenced to 41 months in prison. Because the location of the accident was within Fort Monmouth, the case fell under the jurisdiction of the federal government, rather than the state of New Jersey.
