Description

ABC reporters investigated a car accident involving two young men and a Florida FBI agent. Florence Thompson went looking for her sons and discovered them, instantly killed by a car traveling southbound in the northbound lane of the highway. The driver of the car who killed the young men was FBI agent David Farrall. Florida Highway Patrol officers told Thompson her sons were responsible for the crash and their version was released to the press. Meanwhile, Farrall "was checked into the hospital under an assumed name and guarded around the clock by dozens of fellow federal agents. "The Wrong Lane" investigation is a rare and tenacious treatment exposing the culture of bias within law enforcement that sometimes protects offending officers at the expense of innocent civilians."
