Volkswagen may be charged with pollution deaths

I was wondering if the additional deaths caused by this would result in prosecution, maybe it will:

A study by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston estimates 53,000 premature deaths every year in the US can be attributed to air-pollutant emissions from “road transportation” sources.While some observers believe such charges are unlikely, US authorities have shown their keenness to prosecute major corporations to the fullest extent of the law
