My husband was hit from behind by a man admittingly speeding and preoccupied. He says that as he was coming over a hill,he didn't have time to hit the brakes and slammed into my husband causing his van to nearly hit another vehicle. That distance was 3/10's of a mile. The report says 1 injury, yet my husband also went to the same ER. The report says my husbands van was driven from the scene, IT WAS TOTALLED. Charles Pinneo, who caused the accident was never even given a speeding ticket. 2 witness gave the same story, but the officer paid no attention to that. My husband suffered a TBI & died after 7 years of hell. That pathetic report hurt our case against our Insurance co. we had a million dollar underinsured policy to protect our 7 kids should this ever happen.but they only paid $350,000
