In this appeal we consider a claim for negligent infliction of emotional distress arising from a fatal accident involving a 1999 BMW 328i convertible that appellant Yan Gu (Yan) had purchased from respondent BMW of North America, LLC (BMW), a distributor of BMW motor vehicles. At the time of the accident, Yans sister Ling Gu (Ling) was driving the BMW convertible with their parents as passengers. Ling sustained fatal head injuries due to the vehicles allegedly defective head protection system. The parents were injured in the accident but survived. Yan was not a passenger in the vehicle and she did not witness the accident.
