Family Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit Over Garbage Truck Death in NYC

Comments Off

The family of an English tourist who was killed by a garbage truck has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the driver and his employer, Newark-based Action Carting Environmental Services Inc. The suit seeks unspecified damages.

The driver allegedly passed out behind the wheel of the truck after he failed to take his anti-seizure medication and lost control of the vehicle on February 12th, according to police.

Her companion, also in the vehicle – was killed in the accident. They lived together just outside of London.

The driver has pleaded not guilty to charges of manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide.

A spokesman for Action Carting was out of town and could not be reached for comment.
