Holdings:

The Massachusetts Court made the following holding:
  • A conviction for felony vehicular homicide requires findings both that the defendant was operating under the influence, and that she was operating to endanger (and that her operation caused the death of another).
  • To succeed on the element of operating under the influence, the Commonwealth is required to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that one or more of the scheduled medications, through its effect on the defendant's judgment, alertness, and ability to respond promptly and effectively to unexpected emergencies, diminished her ability to operate a motor vehicle safely. A scheduled medication need not have been the sole or exclusive cause of the defendant's diminished ability to drive safely, so long as is was a contributor.
