The Virginia Supreme Court on Thursday ruled in a 4-3 decision that a Waynesboro family who lost their 3-year-old daughter in a 2006 Ford Windstar van fire, could not use evidence from seven other Ford Windstar fires in their wrongful death lawsuit against Ford Motor Co. and Obaugh Ford.

The Supreme Court ruling affirms an Albemarle County Circuit Court ruling that also excluded the evidence in the case involving the 2006 death of Emily Funkhouser. The 3-year-old died and her twin brother was badly hurt when a 2001 Ford Windstar caught fire soon after they climbed in. The van was in their parents' Waynesboro driveway.
