MRS. RHOADES UNCONSCIOUSLY CONTRIBUTED TO ACCIDENT

The PA State Police Report it indicates that “On 10-27-08 at 1111 hours, I interviewed the passenger of Unit 2 (Mrs. Rhoades). She states the last thing she remembered was Operator 2 (Mr. Rhoades) shouting something like “hold on” or “watch out”. She stated the next thing she remembered was seeing the headlights coming at her in the northbound lane. She stated the headlights looked to be higher than unit 2 (Cadillac driven by Mr. Rhoades). She stated she then felt the impact of the crash.”

Mrs. Rhoades trial testimony as follows “I remember it was dark and I just remember asking him how far it is. I was not familiar with that immediate area, so I just asked him how far it was and he said Oh, we are just about there. He said five minutes or so and that was the last thing he said. And the crash was right there. I remember him – – I remember talking. He had said that and all of a sudden he screamed. He left a scream out. And I had looked and I saw a light coming from – – it came this way. And I saw the, I guess it would be the – – the head light on the driver’s side first as it came right – – and all I could think of was it is high. And I didn’t know it was the truck at the time, but it was high. And I saw it come over this was. And then there was a crash.”

ADA Colleen Mancuso then questioned her “So you saw the light of the vehicle at that time coming towards you, you believe at an angle?”

Mrs. Rhoades responded “Yes, it was.”

As per Mr. Senavitis’ detailed recollection of the accident he indicates that he was driving southbound on SR 209 in Gilbert on the bridge at the Beechwood Inn when a vehicle traveling northbound suddenly shot over into the southbound lane (his lane of travel). He immediately hit the brakes real hard and impact occurred simultaneously.

Mr. Senavitis also recollects that he was actually looking down at the passenger of the vehicle and seeing a light, the light he thought could have only come from a headlight. But if he is looking down at the passenger (Mrs. Rhoades) and seeing the light it had to have been coming from inside the vehicle.

Taken fact Mrs. Rhoades questions Mr. Rhoades on how much further it was, the GPS in their vehicle is located middle lower portion of the dashboard as indicated in this photo, it is appropriate to assess that Mr. Rhoades at that time took a peek at the GPS to see just how long it would be and as he looked back up at the roadway was the time the minivan (driven by Yamila Yafar) off to his right by the shoulder of the road began to enter back on the northbound lane of travel in front of him.

This makes complete probability when all statements including witness statements and the reconstruction of the accident to have occurred in this way.

RHOADES FAMILY SLING LAW SUITS

On October 17, 2008, PA State Senator James Rhoades was involved in a motor vehicle accident on Route 209 in Broadheadsville, PA whereas he passed away and his wife Edith Mary Rhoades was his passenger also severely injured.
Mr. Senavitis was driving the oncoming vehicle in this accident and was also severely injured in this motor vehicle. Mr. Senavitis was charge in this accident for cause and death of Senator Rhoades while intoxicated at 4X’s the legal limit as well as numerous other charges.

Yamila Yafar, the third vehicle involved was pulled on the shoulder of the road in which Senator Rhoades went around this vehicle then struck Mr. Senavitis in the oncoming lane sliding backwards hitting Ms. Yafar’s minivan.

Mr. Senavitis was imprisoned for this accident until put on trial in March of 2010 in which he was cleared of causing the accident and the death of State Senator James Rhoades but guilty of DUI and reckless endangerment which was appealed thereafter. He had spent 10 months in prison.

After the trial acquittal of Mr. Senavitis and the Rhoades and their defense claiming Yamila Yafar had no wrong doing or involvement in causing this accident the Rhoades family is now slinging law suits claiming differently.
Rhoades Family Law suits:

Mr. Senavitis for negligence in the manner in which he operated THE vehicle.

Ms. Yamila Yafar for negligence in causing this accident.

Then a third suit against Mrs. Senavitis for negligence in entrusting the vehicle to her husband.
Mr. Senavitis was driving a pick-up truck titled in Mrs. Senavitis’ name.

These are the law suits we are knowledgeable by the Rhoades family which were filed after the trial.

The week after the accident Mr. Senavitis had already obtained a lawyer for the accident knowing fully he was the victim of this accident and that Nationwide Insurance the carrier for Senator Rhoades was pushing for an immediate settlement on the vehicle and Mr. Senavitis’ injuries without the need for him to have an attorney.

One week prior to the trial Mr. Senavitis’ attorney pulled himself for representing Mr. Senavitis in this matter.
As for Yamila Yafar we have no information on her suits against any party other than he had already by compensated for her vehicle by Mr. Senavitis’ insurance company.

Mr. Senavitis’ insurance company reimbursed Yafar and Senator Rhoades for their vehicles after the accident as they were obligated by the Police Report and their Accident Reconstruction.

Mr. Senavitis has yet to be reimbursed for anything even after being acquitted.
