Some people get charged and some do not. When is an accident, an accident?
Did she have her lights and sirens on?

The only "accidents" are those caused by a force in nature as in Mother Nature. "Accidents" are a result of a failure. Such examples are failing to follow the rules, failing to properly inspect equipment, failure to properly use equipment, failure to pay attention, and the list goes on. Human caused accidents are preventable. In this case, why was the Deputy responding in such a manner to an Amber Alert? Why did the Deputy loose control of the vehicle? With information put forth in the news report (loose facts at best) this tragic event was preventable.

Only thing you can say to this story is not enough information to even guess at who was at fault.
