Elderly Driver Faces Trial for 2003 Deaths

Elderly Driver Faces Trial for 2003 Deaths

Three years ago this month, an elderly man with health problems lost control of his car and tore a deadly path through the Santa Monica Farmers' Market. Ten people were killed, 60 others were injured. The 89-year-old driver finally is about to face trial on 10 felony counts of vehicular manslaughter.

George Weller, 89, hasn't driven since that day. But some survivors are still haunted by the events.

And some legal experts are pondering whether age be a factor in deciding what constitutes justice in the case.
