Gregg Wilcox, the driver who killed 59-year-old William Cox  in a crosswalk last September while driving with a cast on his leg, was found guilty today on one count of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter.
Here’s the statement from the District Attorney’s office:
San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón announced that Gregg Wilcox, age 61, was convicted of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter for a traffic fatality that occurred on Sept 6, 2011 at 14th and Noe Streets.
“This verdict sends a clear message. Everyone should be able to walk our streets without fear of negligent motorists,” said District Attorney George Gascón. “I strongly encourage the public to use common sense when driving a car.”
Last November, Defendant Gregg Wilcox, age 61, was arraigned on charges stemming from a traffic fatality that occurred on September 6, 2011 at 14th and Noe Streets. Wilcox was driving with his left foot due to a walking cast he had on his right foot. While driving, he hit pedestrian William Cox while he was crossing the street in the crosswalk.
