Vehicular Homicide Unit

Adams Wells – Team Leader

The Vehicular Homicide Unit (VHU) is responsible for investigating and prosecuting serious traffic crimes including vehicular manslaughter, homicide by driving under the influence, and hit and run cases involving serious bodily injury or death.  The VHU works collaboratively with police agencies on these investigations, which often involve complicated reconstruction and forensic evidence that can take several months to properly process and complete.  Due to the devastating nature of these crimes, the VHU works with a dedicated victim advocate to ensure adequate support of victims and their families.
