B LAW 402 Mini Decision Topic January 30, 2014 You are to write up a legal brief analyzing this situation. What are the legal rights and obligations of all the parties at every step in this scenario?

The two drivers are also having tough days on the road. One,Andy, gets into an accident when he slides through an intersection and gets struck by a gravel truck.
