GBB: Followup question: Is it possible for 2 independent parties to be 100% at fault for the same incident?

Yeah, it's called pregnancy.

So if a cop is killed in an accident he caused, is he still put on paid administrative leave?

geeze. both were drunk.  no charges should have been filed as the officer is just as to blame for his death as the other driver..

if the cop had no drank and drive he would not have been in the accident that claimed his life.

at worst the guy driving the car should lose his license and pay a fine as the cop should be expected to use good judgement even whennot onthe joband the officer clearly did not.

My condolences to the officer's family.

They were both at fault since both were drunk.  If the guy in the car hadn't run the stop sign, the cop wouldn't have plowed into him.  If the cop weren't drunk, he would probably have been doing much less than 75.  Then he would have arrived at the intersection later and probably after the other guy was gone.  If the cop had survived the wreck, he would deserve to be fired and treated like any other person who did what he did.

If Florida had a sane helmet law, the cop would be back on the force and the other driver would be in prison where he belongs.

Why do I think that if the cop had run the stop sign and been hit by the speeding civilian, it would still be the cop's fault, according to the FARK legal experts.

Trick question!

The cops would have covered up their fellow officer's drunkenness and blamed the civilian from the beginning.
