George Michael sues Lucille for negligently operating a vehicle causing it to HIT a telephone pole. When the car HIT the pole, George Michael, the passenger, was injured. A passerby called 911 and the police arrive at the scene. An officer interviewed Lucille at the scene and wrote Lucille's comments on the accident report, as was required. In the interview, Lucille said, "I don't know what the big deal is, I only had a couple of drinks before getting into the car."Could the plaintiff introduce the accident report, with Lucille's statement, into evidence?



A. No. It is double hearsay and there are no applicable exceptions.
B. No. While the accident report falls under the business record exception, Lucille s statement is still hearsay without an exception.
C. No, while Lucille s statement is an admission and thus not hearsay, the accident report is hearsay that does not fall under any exception.
D. Yes. The accident record is admissible as a business record and Lucille s statement is admissible as an admission.
