Family of truck accident victim files suit against tollway authority
Posted on January 30th, 2010 by Zane Cagle
A Texas family filed a wrongful death suit earlier this month over a fatal truck accident on a Dallas tollway, naming the truck driver and a Texas toll company as defendants.
In the suit, the family alleges that the trucker was following too closely to another vehicle when he lost control of his truck and hit a median, causing a large piece of concrete to crash through the windshield of the victim’s car in the opposite lane, killing him instantly.
The family also named a Texan highway toll company and other parties who were responsible for the engineering, construction or maintenance on the tollway.
In addition to civil action, the trucker was indicted for criminally negligent homicide, which is a state jail felony in Texas.
