Question: Coons and Lawlor began a trip in Coons s car Shortly

Coons and Lawlor began a trip in Coons’s car. Shortly after leaving Coons’s home, Coons felt tired and asked Lawlor to take the wheel. While Lawlor was driving, he fell asleep, the car hit a utility pole, and Coons was injured. Coons sued Lawlor. Lawlor’s automobile insurance company claimed that Coons was not covered because he was a guest in his own car, and under the applicable guest statute, he could not recover without proving willful misconduct on Lawlor’s part. Is this defense valid?
