Frankly, if a driver kills a pedestrian who was crossing the street lawfully, that seems to be prima facie evidence that the driver was not being careful enough. Every single driver found to be at fault should by definition be charged with Careless Driving.

Emphasis mine, but read that again. You've just taken another life, the most serious thing you can do. I submit such situation calls for charges of negligence causing death, if not manslaughter. These would be the charges if you were careless with a firearm and killed someone when it discharged.
