Fairfield Men Charged With Vehicular Manslaughter

I’m Ed Smith, a Fairfield auto accident attorney. Two men from Fairfield appeared in Solano Superior Court on Tuesday, August 23, 2016, on charges of vehicular manslaughter dating back to a 2014 drag racing crash where a 38-year-old man from Vacaville was killed.

What Happened

The two young men, Lawan Harper, 26 and Ansheel Kumar, 21, were allegedly driving at a high rate of speed in an eastbound direction along Airbase Parkway in Fairfield. The incident took place on the night of February 25, 2014. Sadly, a deadly crash occurred ending the life of Quincy Jones. After a lengthy investigation, authorities determined the two male defendants were racing along Airbase Parkway and running stop lights at speeds in excess of 50 mph over the posted speed limit.

According to a press release, the man who passed away was said to have been driving westbound along Airbase Parkway when Kumar’s car hit the passenger side of the victim’s Cadillac. When police arrived at the crash scene, it was discovered victim Jones had passed away as a result of the injuries he sustained in the crash. Kumar, who was behind the wheel of a 2003 Nissan, suffered catastrophic injuries as a result of the crash.
