My brother Jesse, 17, was driving home from school, carrying three other passengers in his mini-van. One of the passengers, Russel, lost his hat when it flew out of an open window. Jesse started slowing down and pulling over so Russel could get the hat, but instead, Russel unbuckeled and jumped out of the car while it was going about 35 mph! He tumbled down a ditch, started convulsing, and passed out. Russel was taken to the hospitol by ambulence, and my brother was left to face the news crews and cops. Russel ended up with a skull fracture, and can't rember anything that happened. Our insurance has to cover his medical bills, even though it was his fault, but luckily Jesse was cleared of any criminal charges. (The two other passengers saw the whole thing.) Don't you hate it when you have to pay for the mistakes of others?
