  1. This accident took place in Louisiana on a road that has three lanes each way. Both vehicles were in the far left lane. The posted speed limit is 40 miles per hour. It had been raining and the road was wet. A small animal came from the tall grass on the left shoulder and into the lane. The first vehicle stopped to avoid hitting it . The second vehicle who had been about 15-20 behind the first was unable to avoid hitting the first vehicle. Is there a statue that would make the first driver liable for stopping in a busy roadway for an animal? My initial thought is that that driver endangered other people by stopping suddenly for that animal.
