The Alaskan man who was accused of causing a fatal crash due to watching a DVD while driving has been acquitted of all charges, including two counts of second-degree murder and two counts of manslaughter. Although Erwin Petterson Jr. maintains he was reaching for a soda when he vehicle swerved into another lane, no specific law in Alaska prohibits using a DVD player within the view of the driver.
Petterson's sister said that after the trial was over, Erwin was taking a long drive in his truck. He has been barred from driving during the two years of his trial.
