One decision that the jury will have to make involves Reasonable Care and an appropriate jury charge might be:

3.6-4 Reasonable Care-Revised to January 1, 2008: In determining the care that a reasonably prudent person would use in the same circumstances, you should consider all of the circumstances which were known or should have been known to the defendant at the time of the conduct in question.  Whether care is reasonable depends upon the dangers that a reasonable person would perceive in those circumstances. It is common sense that the more dangerous the circumstances, the greater the care that ought to be exercised.
