I was reading a drunk driving thread earlier about the dude who knocked someone over and can back and drove over him again to make sure he was dead.
The wife was telling me that, someone could be hit by another car, be dead as they fly through the air, land in oncoming traffic, I drive over them through no fault of my own, and I am now also responsible.
Alternatively, a 96 year old jumps a red light, I hit her, and I am now also responsible.
Back home, if someone jumped a red and I drove into them (killed them or not), I would not be held responsible any anyway at all. Who in their right mind would?
Many times I have nearly sent a geriatric to an early, if not well deserved grave, because they jumped a light, made an illegal turn etc etc.
