Kirkwood Missouri Woman Charged with Involuntary Manslaughter

A Kirkwood Missouri resident has been charged in the death of a bicycle rider in University City this February. She is charged with both driving under the influence and involuntary manslaughter. The driver, Emily C. Hagan, was well over the legal limit in Missouri.

Awareness of the heartbreak caused by drunk driving has been responsible for reducing the rate of fatalities involving alcohol impaired drivers. However, those rates have only decreased ever so slightly and the fact remains that most accidents resulting in fatalities continue to be alcohol related.
