This is the case of Mr. Merv Grazinski of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, who sued Winnebago when he crashed his motor home to make coffee at 70mph:
“In November 2000 Mr. Grazinski purchased a brand new 32 foot Winnebago motor home . On his first trip home, having joined the freeway, he set the cruise control at 70 mph and calmly left the drivers seat to go into the back and make himself a cup of coffee. Not surprisingly the Winnie left the freeway, crashed and overturned. Mr. Grazinski sued Winnebago for not advising him in the handbook that he couldn’t actually do this. He was awarded $1,750,000 plus a new Winnie. (Winnebago actually changed their handbooks on the back of this court case, just in case there are any other complete morons buying their vehicles.)”
Is he still alive and can we interview him?
