After losing their mother in 2009 in a car accident, her two children are suing multiple parties for her death. Among the people named are a sheriff and a friend of the mother. According to the wrongful death lawsuit, the victim, B.J.A., was riding with T.D. in 2009 when their vehicle was struck from behind by a patrol car. It was being driven by sheriff's deputy R.S. while on duty. Her surviving children, K.C. and K.A., claim that both drivers were negligent behind the wheel, their actions ultimately causing the death of their mother.
The lawsuit also names the Georgia Department of Transportation and Thrift Development Corp. for failing to maintain vegetation along the roadway. The vegetation and grass in the intersection where the accident took place had grown to nearly 5 feet, allegedly preventing the drivers from seeing one another clearly. The children are asking to be compensated for funeral expenses as well as suffering and pain incurred by the loss of their mother.
