VIDEO: If you get into a car accident, you could have an unexpected bill headed your way. More cities are adopting a new fee that could affect you even if you didn't cause the crash. On his way to take in the sights of the Wisconsin State Fair, an East Troy man became an unexpected attraction on Greenfield Avenue. A van rear-ended Edward Hinsberger's truck.

Hinsberger's truck needed a new bumper, but the other driver's insurance covered everything.
