On the night of Sept. 30, 2010, a man and a woman fled from a crime scene down a dark country road, sped through a stop sign and ran into two trees. The couple, both with cocaine and other drugs in their systems, died instantly, the car ramming through the space between the trunks, shattering into pieces and catching fire, a devastating, traumatic scene neighbors said looked like war.
The estate of the woman, who was the passenger in the car, filed a lawsuit, claiming those neighbors and Pasco County itself are at fault in her death. The wording of the suit is vague, but the gist of the claims is this:
The stop sign was obscured.
There were no street lights.
And there was no warning to drivers that there were trees on the side of a private road.
They should countersue for trespassing.
