ST. LOUIS — A Franklin County, Mo., woman faces a negligent homicide charge in the northern Arkansas death of a Wildwood, Mo., man who pulled over to help after he saw her car crash on an interstate.

Fifty-one-year-old David P. Moessner was struck and killed on Feb. 28 by a different driver. The public relations manager at AT&T in St. Louis was driving with his wife to visit their daughter at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 23-year-old Alexandra A. Adams of Washington, Mo., wrecked her SUV in an I-540 construction zone near Springdale. Moessner was on the highway shoulder trying to help Adams and an injured passenger when he was hit by another car that had swerved to avoid halted traffic. Adams is also charged with driving while intoxicated.

Why is this woman being charged with negligent homicide? This is a tragic accident, but why is she being charged?

She was drunk and her condition resulted in an accident that led to this man's death. Hence the "negligent" part.

Word to the wise, if you want to drink, stay home or take a cab/bus/train.

wait, what?? She was on the side of the road after having an accident, and the gentleman is then hit by someone else, yet she is charged?
Seems like a stretch here, was the actual driver who hit him charged with anything?
