$10M award for teens’ crash deaths caused by 99-year-old driver

The estate of a Michigan man who died following a Florida car crash last year must pay $10 million to the families of two teenagers who also died in the crash, according to the Associated Press. Walter Roney, 99, of Dearborn, was driving his RV the wrong way on a Fort Pierce, Fla. divided highway on Feb. 6, 2018 when he collided head-on with a truck driven by 18-year-old Santia Feketa.

Feketa and a 17-year-old passenger in the truck, Britney Poindexter, were both killed in the crash. Roney died three days later. In September 2017, Roney was reported as being incompetent to drive.
