  1. Another case where the apparent guilty person survived, but managed to kill another innocent person. I hope they really throw the book at the sedan driver, rather than the all-too-common slap on the wrist.

    According to several other sources, the juvenile who died was a passenger in the Sedan (a 1999 Mazda Protégé) which was driving in the wrong lane, rather than the SUV (a 2003 Toyota Highlander).
