Shortly before midnight, a man is driving through a residential area in an attempt to get to his wife; who is in labor, to the hospital. The posted speed limit is 30 mph, but the anxious husband is driving 60 mph. In a dark area, the car strikes and kills a pedestrian who is standing is the middle of the road looking down at his phone. What homicidal offense; if any, can the driver be convicted of under Maryland and common law.
