This roadside safety case involves a middle-aged man who suffered fatal injuries from a head-on crash that occurred while he was driving on the interstate. At the time of the accident, the man had been driving on the interior lane of a three lane highway at night. A large SUV that was heading the opposite direction on the other side of the highway median barrier suddenly lost control of his vehicle and careened into the median barrier. The barrier, which was made of high-tension steel cables strung between support posts, failed to arrest the SUV, which then impacted the decedent’s vehicle head on. As a result of the accident, the driver was killed instantly. It was alleged that the highway barrier system had been defectively designed and / or installed, and that it should have prevented the accident from occurring.
