In Old Saybrook, Conn., in October 2004, Alan Hauser, who was parked with engine running, sitting with his mother-in-law, accidentally hit the accelerator, causing the SUV to jump a curb and plunge down an embankment into the Connecticut River, where rescuers (who were later cited for heroism) pulled the woman out 30 minutes later. (Hauser managed on his own.) The woman, 75, suffered serious brain damage from being submerged, and in August filed a lawsuit against the city for not having guardrails, not having regular patrols of trained and equipped rescuers, and not having more signs warning people of the danger of falling into the river. (Hauser was also sued, but the family's original plan, to sue individual rescuers, was scuttled.)

The 'Deep pockets' Principle at work.
"Accidentally" hit the accelerator and plunged into the water with his mother-in-law beside him? Then pulled a Teddy K? And a jury bought it? Hmmm.
this must be a lie, I heard ALL SUV's 'roll over', nothing about plunging
unless the criminal SUV's are learning to adapt to new techniques of murdering
Sounds a little fishy...
Oh dear Lord...they're evolving.
I think one is going to try and win an upcoming election, at least I heard it was " running "
These SUV's are all out of control and it's all Bush's fault!
