Illinois wrongful death lawsuit filed by family of young man
A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed by the family of a young man that was killed in “car surfing” stunt earlier this year.
According to the lawsuit, the man was killed on June 30 as he was sitting on top of a car while in a Wal-Mart parking lot and the driver of the car accelerated suddenly. After the car accelerated, the man was thrown from the roof.
The 20-year-old man died two days later of injuries sustained. The 19-year-old driver was charged with reckless homicide as a result of the accident. The lawsuit states that the driver made the sharp turn too recklessly and too fast.
