Most deaths are due to bad decisions.
The Mormans told the Donner Party to take the road to LA then over Tejon pass to Gold country.
They told the 49 Death Valley party same thing but after starting toward LA they decided to just head west to Bird Spring pass that Freemont had come over. They didn't know the Panamint range was in the way.
