MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) - 2 NEWS Investigates has discovered a wrongful death lawsuit has been filed in connection with a fatal crash in a construction zone on I-75.
The lawsuit filed in Montgomery county court. It claims negligence on the part of the construction company that was hired by ODOT to work on Interstate-75 in West Carrollton on July 13, 2012 when a man was killed in a crash.
According to the suit, that man, Charles Rice, drove into a construction zone, through the gap in barricades and into a man-made ravine hitting a truck already "lodged in the Ravine."
2 NEWS investigates obtained video shortly after the accident from the camera inside the car of the first responding officer. The two crashed vehicles were out of sight below the interstate.
Rice's three passengers survived and are now suing Complete General Construction Company. The suit claims the company failed to place barrels in such a way as to keep drivers from off-road areas.
Rice's passengers are seeking relief due to medical and mental anguish. They also seek damages given they missed work in the aftermath of the crash.
