UPDATE: Michigan’s Highest Court Reviews Deadly Crash With Horse
Michigan’s highest court says two Emmet County property owners are not at fault for a car crash that killed a woman.
In 2010, Terri Sholberg died when her car hit a horse standing in the middle of the road in Friendship Township.
Sholberg’s family filed a lawsuit against Robert and Marilyn Truman.
They own the property, but they do not operate the horse farm.
This week, the judge ruled the owners of the property cannot be held liable if someone else controls the property that created the public nuisance.
