Marino Sanchez-Sanchez (3282)

7/1/2006: Sanchez-Sanchez was killed when the van he rode in was struck by a local officer traveling 60 MPH, without lights or siren, ran a stop sign. The officer offered two conflicting excuses for the incident (the stop sign was obscured by a tree limb, and his brakes had failed), and it emerged that during training he'd been criticized for his poor driving five separate times. The family settled for $476K.
