Dead teen's parents get bill for guardrail that killed her during crash

Parents in mourning upset over guardrail billing 'mistake'


LOUDON COUNTY, Tenn. – When the parents of Hannah Eimers, 17, were mourning her death, the last thing they were expecting was a bill from state authorities.

They were charging Hannah for a guardrail that was damaged during the crash that killed her.  

Authorities later said the $3,000 bill sent to Stephen Eimers' daughter was a "mistake somewhere in processing," according to The Tennessean

What upset the Eimers the most was that during the Nov. 1 impact, Hannah suffered the fatal injuries when the guardrail passed through the side door and failed to stop the car.
