Forever Finding Fault

In September 2010, a speeding, intoxicated driver ran a stop sign near Dade City, Fla., careened off a highway, and rammed two trees along a private road, instantly killing himself and his passenger. In January, the passenger’s estate filed a lawsuit for wrongful death, charging residents along the private road with letting trees grow in a dangerous location where they could be easily hit, especially since residents failed to light the area adequately. “How it’s our fault, I have no idea,” said one surprised resident, who noted the whole neighborhood mourned the strangers at the time of the sad, traumatic collision.
