NYPD officer charged with vehicular manslaughter

Posted on Monday, October 7th, 2013 at 4:08 pm    

A pedestrian was killed on Friday morning, October 4 in Staten Island, New York when an off-duty New York Police Department officer plowed his personal sport utility vehicle into him. According to CBS New York, 51-year-old Maryland resident William “Bruce” Hemphill was struck by 29-year-old Joseph McClean, who was speeding when the accident took place.

Hemphill was trying to get to the other side of the road to his job at Great Lakes Dredge and Dock when McClean crashed into him.

The 121st Precinct-based police officer remained at the scene of the accident and was arrested on account of second-degree vehicular manslaughter and driving while intoxicated charges.

Police are still investigating the incident.
