'Not Just Another Freeway Fatality'

January 10, 1988

This is in reply to the letters, "Accident Victims and Seat Belts" (Jan. 3) and the tragic death of Samantha Bass, "Not Just Another Freeway Fatality" (Dec. 21). This article does a great service in pointing out the fallacies of the justice system.

In the prime of life and engaged to be married, my son's life was violently ended. A driver speeding recklessly in a truck with faulty brakes struck his car with no warning. He had no chance. "Cause of Death: Blunt Force." My son was wearing a seat belt. I am angry.
