On May 24, 2001, Claire Duncan was driving on Route I-95 near Petersburg, Va., when a Winnebago made a sudden shift into her lane. The 26-year-old pharmacology Ph.D student swerved her 2000 Ford Explorer and hit the median, launching the boxy SUV into a sideways spin. It rolled five times before landing upright into oncoming traffic.

Duncan, her husband Scott, and sister Marlyn Somera, wore seatbelts. Her passengers sustained only minor injuries, but Claire Duncan suffered a lethal skull fracture.
