FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WISH) - Monday was an emotional day for the families affected by the crash that triggered the David Bisard trial.
When it appeared the case might be headed to a mistrial for a potentially tainted jury, Mary Wells, mother Eric Wells, who died in August 2010, burst into tears and rushed from the courtroom.
“How could this juror do that?” Wells said after leaving the courtroom. “He watched us through the emotional testimony, watched us through the accident scene, watched us through the autopsy.”

George Burt, who survived the wreck, said he repeatedly re-lives that day. He said it was hard to watch the accident reconstruction video.
“Poor Eric's brother had to see it for the first time today and that really hits home," Burt said.
Bisard had nine family members in court on Monday, including his wife and parents. Bisard’s dad told 24-Hour News 8 his heart sank on the juror issue Monday morning, thinking they may have to keep going with the case and trial.
He said they rely on their faith but admitted it’s hard sitting 10 feet from their son and not being able to speak to him.
