I picked up on it after a comment in the Happy Hour thread regarding the accident. I was fascinated but in the end the husband and sister in-law are simply in denial.
Same here, it would have been interesting if she never ever drank or smoked pot & it showed up in her systyem... but the husband admitted she does on occasion. :down: not good with all the kids.I was fascinated but in the end the husband and sister in-law are simply in denial.
Me too! Wow.I was a little shocked that they showed the images of Diane after the crash.
I've read that they thought the documentary would be too pro-Diane. I don't think it was. I think the husband and SIL come across as being in complete denial. But this whole case is so strange. I find it impossible to believe that nobody who saw her that day noticed her drinking (a LOT) or smoking pot. She did it all in the car? I guess it's possible, but it seems so unlikely.I assume the parents of the three small girls didn't participate because they had already accepted the fact that Diane was indeed intoxicated.
The Bastardi family is suing the owner of the vehicle because that's what happens when someone is hurt or killed in an auto accident. They want that insurance money on the vehicle that was insured.I read the other day that the Bastardi family (of victims from the vehicle she hit) is suing the Hance's, who owned the van she was driving... ??? Her brother wasn't even there, she was just using his van. How do you sue him?
Ok, I thought I read the Bastardi's were filing a "wrongful death" suit against the Hance's which I believe would be different than suing under typical "auto accident" guidelines, where you're suing the insurance company and not the person. I thought it was different. Can't find the article now so who knows.The Bastardi family is suing the owner of the vehicle because that's what happens when someone is hurt or killed in an auto accident. They want that insurance money on the vehicle that was insured.
What's even stranger is that Diane's husband is also suing the Hances as the owners of the vehicle. His wife killed their three children but HE is suing THEM. They are also suing Diane's estate of course, which means him as the administrator. So everybody is suing everybody and it will be a battle of the insurance companies to see who pays whom.
Daniel Schuler is suing NY State and the Hances.I hadn't read that Dan Schuler was suing his brother in law... seriously? . . . Still, actually suing people who lost their children in a crash your wife caused is an extremely scary level of denial. Even if she had a medical emergency like they're claiming, it's still not the van owner's fault!
He alleges the highway was badly designed and inadequately sign-posted, which enabled his wife to drive the wrong way into traffic, according to the New York Post. He also alleges in his lawsuit that the Chevy Trailblazer the family had borrowed from his brother-in-law Warren Hance, was faulty.
