Schneider v. Major Car Manufacturer

Marissa Schneider

Marissa Schneider before the crash.

Following her typical evening routine, Marissa Schneider left home for work, driving her 1991 vehicle southbound on road in Snohomish County.

At about 7 pm, a van was driving northbound on the same road. The driver of that van was looking for a specific address, intending to turn left. That driver changed lanes into the lane of southbound traffic; but she had underestimated how quickly she would have to turn. Realizing that there was no outlet after already making the left turn, she attempted to turn back into her own lane of traffic, but before she could do so, her vehicle collided with Marissa’s vehicle.

The van driver testified that there was nothing Marissa did to cause the crash.
