Wrongful death suit heads to trial
Aug. 19, 2013 | 1 Comment
ST. GEORGE— Attorneys representing the plaintiff and defendants in a wrongful death suit met in 5th District Court on Monday to discuss pretrial matters before the case stemming from a 2007 incident is set to culminate in a two-week jury trial in September.
David Livings, 54, of St. George, was killed in a motorcycle accident in October 2007 while riding on River Road near the Tamarisk Drive intersection. He was struck by a runaway trailer owned by a construction company.
During the incident, Sykes was driving a Dodge Ram truck southbound on River Road and Livings was traveling northbound when the trailer detached from the truck, crossed the center line and struck the motorcycle, according to the wrongful death complaint.
He suffered multiple injuries, including a shattered pelvis and injuries to his leg and head, which resulted in his death, according to police. The police also said Livings was not wearing a helmet at the time of the incident.
The Livings family has filed a wrongful death suit against defendants A-T Asphalt Paving Inc., Tri-West Construction and Development Inc., Jason L. Sykes, Kent Wallis, Does 1-50, Cincinnati Insurance Company, A-T Trucking LLC and Cottam Revocable Trust.
According to the complaint made by the plaintiff, the trailer that struck Livings is owned by Cottam, Tri-West and A-T Asphalt.
On Monday, attorneys discussed the upcoming trial, which could take up to two weeks and include a jury pool of 80 jurors to choose from.
The involved parties have attempted to mediate and settle the case outside of a trial, but it appears no terms have been agreed upon. A trial date is set for Sept. 20 in 5th District Court.Follow Samantha Sadlier on Twitter, @SpectrumSadlier.
Click below this for the report we redacted the information of the witnesses but the crash team investigations reveal "Stunning" Liability on the part of the owner of vehicle and trailer and the driver of vehicle and trailer.
Where is the evidence?
Chain Of Custody?
Who is in charge of the accident?
Where are the photo's?
Is the Cincinnati Insurance Group going to "Play The Same Game" and destroy the evidence and submit other evidence?
They have a history of doing so!
We have the evidence!
SYNOPSIS On 02/03/2020 at approximately 0827 hours, I arrived to the scene of a two vehicle collision with personal injuries, on US-69 at E. 700th Ave, in Crawford County. Further investigation revealed Vehicle 1(V1) was traveling northbound on US-69, approaching E. 700th Ave. Vehicle 2(V2) was traveling southbound on US-69, approaching E. 700th Ave. V1 was towing a tandem axle trailer which became unhitched and broke free from the vehicle. The trailer then swerved across the highway into the south bound lane and was stuck by V2. Both the trailer and V2 came to rest in the southbound lane of US-69, just south of E.700th Ave. V1 continued forward and stopped on the northbound shoulder of US-69, just to the north of E. 700th Ave. Driver 1(D1) Michael C. Falletti and Passenger 1(P1) Paul C. West were not injured in this collision. Driver 2(D2) Savannah M. Reinhart sustained disabling injuries from this collision and was transported to Ascension Via Christi Hospital, by Crawford County EMS. This report details the investigation of this collision.
Now look at all the safety features that either failed or was not used:
CRAWFORD COUNTY EMS MOBILE #3 Randy Glessner Patrick Smart
ARMA FIRE DEPARTMENT Chuck Burns
PHYSICAL EVIDENCE Skid marks left in the roadway by V2 showed that it had been traveling south on US-69, prior to the collision.
An inspection of V1 and it's trailer revealed that the pintle hook was working properly; however it was not securely latched properly. This caused it to become unhitched after traveling over some bumps in the roadway. The safety chains were not attached properly. The chain attached to the right hand attach point on the truck came loose, this caused the entire weight of the trailer to be held by the other chain which was attached to the left hand attach point on the truck. This attach point broke and the trailer became completely detached from the truck.
The trailer's break-away brake system did not engaged. This was due to either the break-away cable not being properly fastened to the truck or not being hooked up at all. An inspection of this cable showed that there was no loop or attachment device to hook onto the truck, meaning that if it had been attached it would of had to of been tied to it.
MCI Bales later completed a CVSA Level II inspection on V1, see attached report #KSHP921001362
