A: You need to ask a question. Mentioning that an unnamed person (who may or may not have been the at-fault driver) had an accident 42 years ago and then asking why his wife was sued is a commentary, not a question. If you want a legal analysis, you need to provide the requisite information. For example, in the case of an auto accident, you need to state how many cars are involved, whether it is an intersection accident, whether fault has been determined, against whom fault was determined, whether any of the vehicles contained passengers, and the dec sheet or certificate of noninsurance for each vehicle involved, at a minimum.
