The Act creates a new felony offense of serious injury by vehicle resulting from reckless driving. Previously, the Code restricted the felony offense of serious injury by vehicle to reckless driving due to impairment of ability by alcohol or drugs. The Act broadens the statute's scope to include reckless driving without such impairment.
