CASE ENTRY

Patel v. LM General Insurance Company

Man waiting at a St. Louis traffic light is gunned down by unidentified occupants of another vehicle. Can the man’s widow recover $250k from his insurance policy, which covered him in the event of an accident with an uninsured motor vehicle? The Eighth Circuit, interpreting state law, says no. The man’s death was caused not by an uninsured vehicle but by gunfire.
