Lawsuit filed in fatal I-95 crash in Lake Worth
Posted on May 13, 2008
The father of a 17-year-old honor student killed in a January car crash on Interstate 95 has sued the contractor and engineering firms in charge of a road construction project as well as the driver of the vehicle that rear-ended the car in which the teen was a passenger.
Philip Davis, on behalf of his son, Brian Davis, blames abrupt lane closures and inadequate lighting and warnings for the four-vehicle crash in Lake Worth on Jan. 8.
Defendants Astaldi Construction Corp. and Corradino Group Inc. as well as Mark Best are the named defendants. Best's Chevrolet truck rear-ended the Toyota Camry that Davis was in. The wreck occurred near a construction zone on Sixth Avenue South.
Davis was coming home from an English study class. At Palm Beach Gardens High School, he was captain of the swim team and also a member of the varsity track team.
