McManus said, “The elements of that offense are clearly present in this case.”
He said officers — including Seaton's brother, John, who is an officer with the department's Tactical Response Unit — were struggling to comprehend the tragic accident.
“A lot of police officers are still trying to figure out what were all the intricacies involved,” Helle said. “We just don't know what was going through (Seaton's) mind.”
“That all remains to be seen how this case goes,” McManus said. “We're still concerned primarily with (Seaton's) health.”
He added: “It's just an unpleasant situation all around.”
Two patrol cars, including Davis' car, were parked and lit up at the intersection of Potranco Road and Hunt Lane before the crash.
Davis died three days later, after his family removed him from life support Dec. 1.
Lampkin was released from hospital last week.
“In this situation, no one wins,” Carter said. “(Seaton) will have to live with what he did for the rest of his life. ... But he's still alive and breathing. I won't ever get to talk to my son again.”
