The last idiot should be held liable. You know it's icy, you've seen cars slide all over the place, your vehicle is sitting still at the moment, but instead of trying to back it up a couple feet out of the main road, the nut decides to pull on out and try to "get er goin". So, a couple of other cars that otherwise were OK get smashed. If it were the driver of a big ole truck with big ole tars, the stupidity could be understood. But it wasn't.
Believe it or not, insurance companies actually label these events as "Acts of God" when it comes to blame or determinations of fault. Check and see. They really do. That is amazing. The insurance companies base their determinations on their belief that God made it ice over in Portland, and made Sally stupid enough to get out in her car and try to drive downhill. It's nobody's fault. God did it. By that reasoning, and by clearly professing a belief in God...then what isn't an "Act of God"? If Sam drives drunk, didn't God cause that also? Didn't God create John Gacey's mind? Or Osama Bin Laden's? By insurance company rules, how can anyone be at fault for anything?
One of fine lovely news stations played this and I can't remember which one it was but the female newcaster was actually laughing at the carnage, apologizes and then laughs some more.
Why does it seem, though, like everyone is slamming on the gas and just sliding into each other?
