Default Oops...

Lead cars stops, preacher runs in to the lead car, hearse runs in to the preacher, family runs in to the hearse.

Oh my! That's not going to buff out. Hopefully no one was injured.

Too bad a minor but expensive hit. Sorting out Liability will be interesting. Perhaps time for a handout to procession drivers about following at a safe distance.

This your firm Richard?
I can't imagine the insurance claim on this one. Ron Hast used to tell a story of a California Funeral Director in the lead car who got engaged in a conversation with the minister riding with him, got distracted, and drove the entire procession to the funeral director's residence...

What the heck is the preacher doing driving in the procession anyway?? I have never heard of the preacher driving in the procession. The preacher always rides shotgun in the lead car or the hearse.

I recall a couple of situations where the preacher/priest had another commitment soon after the funeral, and didn't have the time to hang around the cemetery, only to be driven back to the church. In these situations, he took his own car. Not a common occurrence, but it did happen.

The preacher will be primarily at fault. Each car, except the lead car, will have some liability as they failed to maintain control.

I would say who the hearse drive was, however, I like living, and there is no way that I am going to do anything that will cause the Godfather to take a contract out on me...
