Jury Convicts Crosslake Man In Crash That Killed Boy

(AP) A jury has convicted a 68-year old man who was driving a van that struck and killed a 3-year old boy in Merrifield two years ago.  Jurors on Wednesday found Sherman Frederick of Crosslake guilty of criminal Vehicular homicide.  Frederick also was found guilty on a lesser charge of careless driving.

Authorities say Frederick drove on the right shoulder to get around cars that were waiting for several children to cross the road in May of 2009.  That's when authorities say he struck and killed Jack Larson of Buffalo, who was visiting his grandparents for Mother's Day weekend.

The defense argued that Frederick has medical issues - he suffers from sleep apnea and diabetes - that may of led to the crash.

im not buying it. as with everyone in this world, its all about me. im special, im in a hurry, look out for me. these people should be locked up. he knew what he was doing. how can sleep apnea, or diabetes allow you to use careless judgement. and if this is the case, then he should not be allowed to drive, period.
