The verdict, the largest ever awarded against a car company in a safety case, found that Sergio Hernandez Jimenez II died because Chrysler knowingly manufactured minivans with a defective latch in the rear lift gate.

Half a day after a car slammed into a deep ditch and flipped, the victim was found unconscious under a bush by his father. A patrolman first on the scene was hit by a truck. The patrolman was taken to the hospital. The truck driver was charged with drunk driving. But more than two dozen authorities who scoured the area in Blacksburg for Daniel Walker Jr. failed to find him, though he was only 20 feet from the wreckage.

From lonely country roads to busy highways amid the rolling meadows and thick forests of this southwestern South Carolina area, white crosses mark the spots where people died in traffic accidents. They are the handiwork of Aiken County Coroner Sue Townsend, who hauls a plywood stencil in the back of her white station wagon so that each time she finishes collecting information about a fatal crash, she can paint a cross on the roadway.
