On June 17, 2011, a Lehigh County driver was charged with involuntary manslaughter, driving under the influence of a controlled substance and other crimes.  Investigators recently concluded their analysis of the evidence from a fatal pedestrian-car accident which took place on Nov. 5, 2010 on Race Street in Catasauqua.  An article in The Morning Call quotes a police arrest warrant as stating that an accident reconstruction expert determined that a sober driver would have been able to avoid the PA pedestrian accident victim.
