    Well it’s a good thing none of the terrible things you are envisioning has happened yet as you are driving within the legal limits of the law. Because then you’d have committed a traffic offense and likely have to prove you are capable of driving all over again because some person high as shit or blowing through a stop sign on a bicycle got hit by your car.

    Well yes, but have you considered that the driver isn't a nice guy?

    I know that there are some loons out there that like 'Cuse basketball. Crazy mf'ers if you ask me. I've never been a fan of the team and am ambivalent about Boeheim. He probably isn't a nice guy. He's also old. So....I guess that calls for jail time right?

    I saw a motorcycle accident in my rear view mirror last Friday. Guy actually started to get up and walk as a truck from behind was bearing down on him. Long story short, the guy was not hit, but if he had been it wouldn't have been the fault of the truck driver, it simply would have been a horrible tragedy for all involved. As it is, the poor guy on the motorcycle has a long recovery ahead of him.

    You have a different definition of fault than I do. Boeheim is probably going to get sued for big bucks by Jorge's family, and I see no scenario in which Jim isn't at least partially at fault.

    He did it on purpose!

    Also, Nike WANTED Zion to fall.
    The fact that a well-known person might get sued for money says nothing about whether or not he committed a crime or whether said persons should win a lawsuit seeking cash. Based upon what we have all read, there is virtually no way that he will be found at fault. Virtually none. Near 0%. Nada.

    I never said he would be criminally liable other than I feel like there should be a traffic citation. But in the world of civil liability, I think Jim is toast and deserves to pay Jorge's family a lot of money.

    Where's the negligent behavior on the part of Boeheim?

    Remember that bit earlier today about it being illegal to wander around highways.... that's gonna play a roll.

    He clearly failed to stop his car where he should have. Even if he was driving the speed limit, that may well have been too fast in the conditions. He should have been able to completely stop without having to swerve to avoid a stopped car in front of him. He did not maintain control of his car appropriately. He is at fault, it may very well not be 100%, but he deserves to pay for killing Jorge.

    Wrong. A person was wondering on the highway. It is very likely that this will be a no-fault accident.

    Meanwhile, your continued foolish postings on the subject are driving the rest of us mad. You should probably pay for our madness. Seriously, if you think that this accident means someone should pay a cash settlement then I firmly believe you should pay each member of this site who has read this thread $10,000 for the anguish of having to read your stupidity. “we are all dumber for having read your comments” today.

    I'm no Boeheim fan but this accident occurred at night on an interstate highway. Do we know if they had flashers on? Because if the car was just sitting there in the dark there's no way you're stopping by the time you see it. You're also not going to be able to stop by the time you see a guy walking, either. You seem to be presuming a lot here.

    Whether he's at fault or not he's going to get sued. It'll be settled out of court and the guy will still be dead.

    If you can't stop your car to avoid hitting another car in front of you and instead swerve and hit and kill a person, I don't care what other circumstances exist, in the world of civil liability you are at fault for that death to some extent. The mitigating circumstances just reduce the percentage of responsibility.
