House rejects new inattentive driving offense for untreated medical conditions

The House has rejected legislation from Rep. Janet Trujillo, R-Idaho Falls, to create a new inattentive driving offense for those who knowingly drive with an untreated medical condition. HB 466 failed in the House on a 19-49 vote. In an earlier committee hearing, a constituent of Trujillo's shared the story of how her young daughter was killed in a car crash in Montana, and the driver, whose untreated diabetic condition caused him to crash, wasn't cited.
