A Toyota Corolla sedan was rear ended by a Dodge Ram pickup truck towing a flatbed trailer. After the collision, a 6-year-old girl who was in the sedan was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the sedan and a 12-year-old passenger were hospitalized.
After fewer than two hours of deliberation, a jury in Bainbridge, Georgia, found the manufacturer of a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee liable for the death of a four-year-old boy who was killed when his family's SUV went up in flames after being rear-ended, causing its fuel tank to leak. The jury ordered the Fiat Chrysler to pay $150 million in damages to the boy's family.
This week begins with three wrecks for drivers to consider.
