Man Facing Vehicular Homicide Charges after Awakening from Coma

car accident comaA Casper, Wyoming man is facing multiple vehicular homicide charges from a car accident that occurred on Halloween 2011.

The man and his two passengers were declared dead after sideswiping another vehicle while traveling on Amoco Road. The Natrona County Coroner later discovered that he was actually alive, but in a comatose state.

The coroner found difluoroethane, a chemical from canned air that is often inhaled by teens to get high, in the driver’s system. It was later confirmed that he had stolen them from a nearby office supply store earlier in the day.

The driver, now 20 years of age and awake from his coma, plead guilty at his arraignment and accepted a plea bargain that will give him a maximum sentence of eight years, which can be served concurrently. He will be sentenced at a later date.
