Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • The mere happening of an accident does not give rise to an inference of reckless driving.
  • The essence of the offense of reckless driving lies not in the act of operating a vehicle, but in the manner and circumstances of its operation.
  • To fall asleep while operating an automobile manifests a disregard by the driver for the consequences of his act and an indifference to life, limb or property sufficient to find the operator guilty of the offense of reckless driving.
