Strange Claims Indeed 9

September 16, 2008

Retired claims manager for the now defunct General Rent-a-Car in South Florida, Jay Bach, recalled a claim from the late 1980s where a driver slid into a wall killing the passenger. Apparently the driver and passenger worked for the FBI, investigating local police. The mother of the deceased passenger’s son sued, but the FBI and local police refused to cooperate. The rental company’s investigation team discovered the car had even been bugged. Bach said his team’s investigations lead from South Florida to the Caribbean Islands, but never uncovered the details of the accident. He said the discovery documents were blacked out by the FBI. Despite a local judge in the case apparently expressing anger at the Bureau’s “deliberate attempt to thwart the truth,” the case settled out of court for an undisclosed amount. Bach said the son of the deceased, while riding his bike the day of the accident, witnessed the crash, but didn’t know his father was in the car and had passed.
