wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against Mission Viejo for the death of a young girl.
Last week Stephanie Bolton filed the lawsuit on behalf of 17-year-old Anastasia
Bolton who was killed by a Metrolink train last September after falling
asleep on the tracks. The claim states that there was "no fencing
or other warning existed in the area where Anastasia accessed the tracks."
She is hoping to claim "premises liability" and blames the city for failing to provide warning of an area that
had high traffic and inherent danger. Stephanie, whose relationship to
the victim was not mentioned in the lawsuit, is asking for $5 million
in damages as well as an unknown amount of future costs based on the "wrongful
death, costs, life expectancy."
In addition to Bolton's loss another young man was killed, 22-year-old
Daniel Akins of Mission Viejo, while Silvia Lua, 27, was injured.
