Food Express, Inc. Sued In Oregon Woman’s Death
The husband and adult children of an Oregon woman are suing Food Express, Inc. of Arcadia, California for wrongful death after she died in an accident with one of the company’s tractor trailers.
The 54-year-old woman was killed when the driver of a tractor pulling two trailers lost control on a snow and slush covered Oregon highway on January 25th and crossed the center line crashing into her Toyota 4-Runner. According to witnesses, the driver was traveling too fast for the road conditions.
The wrongful death lawsuit accuses Food Express of negligence, carelessness, and recklessness in the hiring, training and supervision of the truck driver. It also claims the driver was driving at speeds greater than were reasonable or lawful for the road conditions on that day.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.
