Under California Penal Code Section 192, manslaughter is "he unlawful killing of a human being without malice." There are three types of manslaughter- 1) Voluntary, 2) Involuntary, and 3) Vehicular. The above case would most likely fall under the category of vehicular manslaughter as the driver was driving the vehicle while unlawfully speeding and it resulted in the death of his passenger. Because Nader was grossly negligent, he could be convicted for vehicular manslaughter and receive up to 6 years in prison.
