People v. Sup. Ct. (Costa), B220346

People's petition for a writ of mandate is granted as the trial court erred in granting defendant's motion to dismiss murder charges as the evidence before the grand jury was sufficient to support a rational ground for assuming the possibility that defendant decided to continue to drive his truck down a highway with an actual awareness of the great risk of harm his actions created, resulting in the deaths of two people.
