Something's smelly in Denver...

Dec 14, 2010: From the DenverPost.com news "New-car smell" cited in Edwards hit-and-run case
  • "New-car smell" might have contributed to a driver losing consciousness in a July hit-and-run accident, his lawyers claim.
    Martin Erzinger was driving a new 2010 Mercedes sedan when he rear-ended bicyclist Dr. Steven Milo, about 1:30 p.m. July 3.
    Erzinger's attorneys say their client suffers from sleep apnea and fell asleep at the wheel before driving off U.S. Highway 6 and onto the shoulder near Miller Ranch Road, hitting Milo, who sustained injuries, from behind.
    Erzinger had purchased the car about a month before the accident. Accident reconstructionist John Koziol found in his investigation the sedan was emitting new car fumes, court documents said. It might have been a contributing factor, documents said.
