This case involves traffic cone misplacement which resulted in the death of a child. Traffic cones were set out to block off a lane for a highway design and construction. The plaintiff was driving his wife and twelve-year-old daughter by the area of road work when he saw a traffic cone in his lane. He swerved to dodge the cone and overcorrected, veering into the next lane of traffic. The back half of the plaintiff’s car hit the front of another car and sent both cars spinning. The child was hit on the head and killed on impact and the plaintiff and his wife both suffered from neck injuries and breathing difficulty. The passenger of the other car also sustained a dislocated shoulder and bruises. A traffic engineering expert is sought to opine on the issue.
