We have more information about the wreck on I-75 that claimed two lives on May 28th. The family of one of the victims has filed a lawsuit against the construction and trucking companies that were involved in the deadly accident.
The family of the young girl who died when concrete barriers fell on her car held a press conference on June 10th to announce their pursuit of damages in excess of $15 million. While the Florida Highway Patrol is still looking into the crash, the family has released some of the information that they gathered in their own investigation.
Days before the accident, the construction company had blocked off lanes to allow for the safe entry of trucks onto the interstate, but these measures were not taken on the night of the crash. Witnesses say that the construction truck at the center of the accident crossed every lane of traffic on that side of the interstate, which left the car carrying the crash’s other victim nowhere to go.
