The magistrate charged the investigated with a crime of felony reckless homicide. In the judicial resolution, which can be appealed, the judge reports that “there are sufficient indications” to charge the driver with the commission of said crime, punishable by between 1 and 4 years in prison. Thus, as stated in the car, the report presented by the Foral Police shows that the accident occurred in a section under construction in which, after hesitating about the path to follow, the defendant invaded the opposite lane in which he was circulating correctly the motorcyclist, against whom he collided head-on.
As for the signs of criminality, the magistrate points out that the driver, pending the final report, could circulate at about 105 km/h in a section limited to 60, “which undoubtedly would have directly influenced the fact of lacking reaction capacity and being able to stop the vehicle in time”.
