Progressive is know for not wanting to pay a fair settlement for any kind of injury or death. I hope they, their adjusters and lawyers go to a special place in hell.

Other defendants who suffered injuries included Sgt. Charles Keene of Youngstown, who was driving the recruits to Cleveland, and a fourth recruit, Carl McDermott of Masury, who was seated in the front seat of the car. THIS IS A TYPO, RIGHT? WHY WOULD ANYONE IN THE CAR IN WHICH THE BOYS DIED BE A DEFENDANT; SHOULD SAY PLAINTIFF, RIGHT?

A friend of mine from Florida lost his son in August 1999. There were five 20 year olds coming back from a concert in Minnesota in a Ford Focus. They got as far as Toledo when a semi hit them from behind. The driver didn't stop. Another truck driver got his license plate number and turned him in. My friends son was pushed out of the car and the car ended up on top of him. He died but not right away. The driver of the truck did not go to prison. He got fined and so did the trucking company and he had his license taken away for four years. The five people in the car got a total of one million. The parents of the boy who were divorced each got $250,000 and the other 4 split the rest. But remember the lawyer also got money out of this. The father of the guy that died was upset that the trucker got no jail time. Not sure they ever said why the trucker ran over top of that car on the Interstate.

That's not much of a settlement, for those young mens life's. Heck my ex got $1.5 million from Delphi, for being hit by a car in the employee parking lot. Other than some bruises on her right side and having a rod put in her right leg below the knee, she was fine. She wasn't even knocked unconscious, just alot of pain while healing. Those family's definitely had the wrong attorney representing them, to settle for such a low amount.

What does the music he was listening to in his truck when he hit the recruits matter? So he was listening to Rob what? If he had been listening to Loretta Lynn music instead, would that have made the accident any less tragic? Come on, Trib.
