subject to this section and §§ 4177 and 4177L of this title to a chemical test or tests of that person's blood, breath and/or urine
for the purpose of determining the presence of alcohol or a drug or drugs. The testing may be required of a person when an officer has probable cause to believe
the person was driving, operating or in physical control of a vehicle in violation
of §§ 4177 and 4177L or § 2742 of this title, or a local ordinance substantially conforming thereto.
(b) The testing shall be required of a person when an officer has probable cause to
believe the person was driving, operating or in physical control of a vehicle in violation
of § 4177 or § 2742 of this title or a local ordinance substantially conforming thereto and was involved
in an accident which resulted in a person's death. In the event of a fatal accident if the officer does not believe that probable cause
exists to require testing, then the officer shall file a written report outlining
the reasons for that determination.
