The crash on
Border contends that
Border also claims Adams' insurance company; semitrailer truck driver
Linsley was never charged in the crash.
Authorities reported the Borders' children, then aged 8 and 5, also were injured in the crash, one of them gravely. The children are not mentioned in the lawsuit.
Adams' car was disabled on the side of the highway near
Border and another vehicle stopped to help, and that's when the truck hit all three stopped vehicles, according to the criminal complaint.
Border alleges Adams and Linsley were negligent in their driving and that Linsley's employer was responsible for his driving.
The lawsuit states that Border will continue to suffer pain, disability, emotional distress, anxiety, loss of enjoyment of life, the cost of medical care and will lose earnings and earning potential.
He will also suffer the loss of the companionship of his wife and incurred funeral expenses, and will suffer the loss of his wife's financial support, household services and inheritance, the lawsuit states.
Adams' criminal case is continuing in
