I have to say, I've learned some things about her that makes me, in retrospect, respect her a great deal.
I can understand a father's grief, but it doesn't give him an excuse to lash out at the world. It's hard, but he needs to find a healthy outlet for his pain. It sounds like he's spent the last ten years stewing, brooding, and trying to figure out who hurt him, because somebody must be to blame. Unfortunately, if somebody was to blame, it seems as though practically everybody must have been to blame, given that it's awfully hard to fake all that evidence without powerful intervention. I think the fact that his son seemed barely mentioned in the hoopla must've made things worse. Then again, I'd never heard of his son until the crash.

"You can't erase icing."
"I can't believe it doesn't work! I found it on the internet, man!"
