Sounds like someone is owed a very large apology from maybe someone else who actually DID cause that accident. Sounds like blaming was her way of coping instead of taking responsibility for accidentally killing her own grandmother. What this guy says makes sense. He wasnt even heading that way. Time heals, good luck to all.

It sounds like the jury made the right decision. I am sorry for Ms Andersons family, but even the experts say he was going straight not turning. In these situations it is called an accident for a reason.

Sounds like the jury made the right decision. My sympathy to Ms Andersons family. In situations like this there is a reason they call them "accidents", and Mr Bell was not even traveling the way she said he was and this was proven.
