This is a clear case of fault by the driver who fails to stop for the stop sign and then, according to the drawing, runs right into the driver’s car that has the right of way. This 39-year-old driver’s family has a claim; since from her personal injuries she died. Notice the person’s life was not saved by the airbags even though they deployed. That’s because this is a sidewall collision; a t-bone type of collision. According to the report Mindy Hume died, she was only 39-years old and lived in West Liberty. The other driver, Eric Boots is 19 and from Muscatine. The first question we lawyers ask is all about distractions in the cockpit of the at-fault driver’s car.
