Businessman Victor Emparo reports a car crash which kills driver Karen Emparo, not teenage passenger kid Greg and Lily. Yet nothing is what it seemed, e.g. the other car was technically stolen by Victor's sister Marta from her ex, to whom he was returning it. Karen's blood show an excessive alcohol level, she certainly cheated on husband Andrew. The car however shows evidence of marijuana dealing and apparent sabotage. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


While it is possible for bacteria to cause the blood alcohol level to rise significantly post-mortem, it takes several days. Here, they weren't even done clearing the scene of the accident when they measured it. See more »


Jesse Cardoza: Patrol just got back to us. License plate belongs to a Billy Jones.
Walter Simmons: Okay. Well, where the hell is he?
Jesse Cardoza: Uh, he wasn't here. Reported it stolen last night.
Walter Simmons: That means somebody jacked the car, caused a crash that killed the woman, and fled. Guy's a one-man crime spree.
Jesse Cardoza: Whoa, whoa, whoa. We don't even know which car caused the accident yet.
Walter Simmons: Well, we know innocent people don't flee the scene.

Unbelievable incompetence
20 April 2010 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

I usually watch CSI: Miami because the acting is terrible and the plots ridiculously funny. This was a beauty!


A Cadillac Escalade (SUV/4WD) is driving along a suburban street when it swerves to avoid an alligator crossing the road - as you do in Florida.

Just as it is swerving, a (stolen) Rolls Royce is entering the same road into the same direction, from a side street. Just to clarify: both vehicles are travelling in the same direction at similar speeds.

The Cadillac has an unknown fault with its power steering and the driver cannot correct the swerve and skids into the rear of the Rolls, causing the death of both drivers.

The cause of the power steering failure?

The son of the (female) driver had hidden a small packet of marijuana near the Cadillac's firewall and as he was poking down the foil packet with a pocket knife, he accidentally slices the power steering hose!

This is an incredible knife because the power steering is located on the FRONT of the engine and the hoses travel directly down to the steering box. They do not go anywhere near the rear of the engine nor the firewall. Also, power steering hoses are robustly-tough, high-pressure hoses and cannot be nicked or sliced accidentally with a pocket knife.

Later, when 'Mr Wolfe" is removing the high-pressure, power steering hose, he goes under the passenger cabin of the Cadillac, yet - as I said before, the hoses are at the front of the engine bay. The only thing under the cabin is the exhaust, propeller shaft, hand-brake cable and fuel line.

And how did they discover the secreted stash of marijuana? The lights suspended in the engine bay created so much heat that they somehow managed to cook the grass leaves inside the foil! The Cadillac had been in a major accident so there would probably be broken fuel lines, spilled oils, etc., so the chance of a fire was exacerbated by these dangerous lights! Any sensible investigator would be using cool lighting like fluorescent or LED lights.

And why was a CSI involved in a traffic collision anyway? This was a job for a team of Serious Crash Unit professionals.

Finally, a Rolls Royce would not be so seriously damaged by a same- direction collision. And its driver would easily walk away from the minor bingle without a scratch - not death.

This showed the CSI team to be a complete bunch of clumsy idiots who had absolutely no idea what they were doing and who could not extrapolate the data, nor search for the correct information in the first place!

All-in-all, one of the silliest CSI: Miami's ever! I loved it!

(Gotta wait for the 'Horatio side-on look' and when he takes of his sunnies - DRINK!)
