It is rare, although not unheard of, for an automobile to be used intentionally as a murder weapon. Most vehicular homicide offenses are the result of gross negligence (negligent homicide), recklessness (manslaughter), or conduct exhibiting extreme indifference to human life (second degree murder). Some extreme DUI accidents resulting in death have been charged as second degree murder.
