Alice Parton 3 months, 3 weeks ago on Routt County jury awards $1.251 million to accident victim

Oh, and something else I have noticed in this story is that they tested Ms. Erickson's blood and found THC in her system, 5 NANOGRAMS ( that's 1/billionth of a gram by the way and could have been in her system from two weeks ago), however they did not test the other driver in the accident for alcohol or drugs. Why not?

And then to also see a law is passed after this accident that declares any person driving with 5 nanograms of THC to be under the influence? Something smells fishy.....

I have been following this story since 2011. The original article about this accident states Ray's injuries were minor:

"Erickson, Moll and his passenger, 51-year-old Mary Ray, also of Steamboat, were taken to Yampa Valley Medical Center.

Doctors at YVMC worked for three hours to save Erickson, but the injuries to her abdomen, chest and head were too severe. Moll and Ray suffered minor injuries and were treated and released."

So, I notice that this article claims, "Moll's passenger, Mary Ray, also suffered life-changing injuries."

Why are the stories different?

I would also like to state my opinion, that if anyone should receive over a million dollars because of this accident, it should probably the parents of Ms. Erickson. They lost their only child. Can you image? THAT is life-changing. And THAT would cause post-traumatic stress. THAT affects two people's jobs and everyday life. Especially considering her family was not contacted to notify them that their daughter was killed. Her mother read the news online here at Steamboat Today. What a tragedy.
