The prosecution rested Wednesday in the DUI manslaughter trial of former major league baseball player Jim Leyritz, after a crash reconstruction expert said Leyritz wasn't speeding before the crash that killed a 30-year-old woman.
Testifying for the prosecution, crash expert Donald Felicella said based on the damage to Leyritz's red Ford Expedition and other factors, his vehicle was going about 35 mph _ the posted speed limit _ when it approached the intersection shortly after 3 a.m. on Dec. 28, 2007.
"There was not anything to indicate that speed was a factor," Felicella told jurors, adding later that airbags did not deploy in either vehicle and there was no indication that either driver hit the brakes.
