Moreover, even if evidence were to exist tending to show that the collision was caused by extraordinary, unforeseeable conduct on the part of Williamson, Hildebrandt, or some other person, it is questionable whether this is an issue to be litigated in a grand jury context.
The provisions of this section do not relieve the driver of an authorized emergency vehicle or a vehicle displaying a flashing blue light from the duty to drive with regard for the safety of all persons, nor do the provisions of this section allow the driver of a vehicle displaying a flashing blue light to proceed past a stop sign or red signal without first stopping.
Moreover, it is natural and foreseeable that, under the stress of the situation, police officers may engage in driving that, viewed in hindsight, fails to satisfy the standard of care required by 13 AAC It does not appear to us that the Department of Public Safety intended to have the application of this right-of-way rule hinge on whether a police department chooses to exercise its option under 13 AAC No more is required for purposes of establishing proximate cause.
On appeal, Kusmider argues for the first time that, had the trial court permitted him to pursue the issue, he might have established gross negligence on the part of the paramedics. For instance, 13 AAC For example, 13 AAC But it is both natural and foreseeable that, during the high-speed chase of a suspected lawbreaker, police officers may engage in driving maneuvers that involve calculated risk.
The court rejected the defendant's claim that the driver's conduct should be considered a superseding cause of the homicide. The subject matter revolved around the constitutional right to privacy as enshrined in the Fourth Amendment The constitutionality of the Fourth Amendment was litigated on through the spectrum of recreational use of marijuana.

This is true only in situations in which the second act of negligence looms so large in comparison with the first that the first is not to be regarded as a substantial factor in the final result.

Kusmider maintained that the paramedics who transported Villella might have been negligent in failing to restrain Villella's arms.
And, applying this same rule, the court in United States v. Interpretation of these provisions requires knowledge of how 13 AAC defines "authorized emergency vehicle" and "vehicle displaying a flashing blue light".
Judge Hodges granted Malone's motion to dismiss the two charges.
The judge ruled that this explanation of probable cause was incomplete, that the grand jury should have been told about the doctrine of "intervening cause".
An "authorized emergency vehicle" must have either a flashing or rotating red light. This remains true even if the person responding to the defendant's conduct is himself negligent that is, acts unreasonablyso long as this negligent or unreasonable conduct is a normal or foreseeable response to the defendant's conduct.
However, the duty of stopping at controlled intersections applies only to the second category of vehicles those displaying flashing blue lights.
When this occurs, the law no longer views the other person's conduct as simply a contributing cause of the injury.
The judge ruled that negligent failure to provide appropriate medical assistance could not, under the circumstances, interrupt the chain of proximate causation and that, therefore, no jury issue of proximate cause had been raised by Kusmider's offer of proof.
On appeal, Kusmider argues for the first time that, had the trial court permitted him to pursue the issue, he might have established gross negligence on the part of the paramedics.
In it, the petitioner sought to convince the court to aver that it was against the Alaskan and American Constitutions to prosecute individuals whose Fourth Amendment rights had suffered a violation.
