There has been a second lawsuit filed regarding a fatal December 1, 2012 “head-on” collision that happened in Campton Hills, Illinois.
The first lawsuit, as well as a description of the underlying fatal collision, was summarized in the December 6, 2013 post titled “Lawsuit Filed Over Fatal Illinois Car Collision.”
This second lawsuit has been filed by Erin Pazin, who was a passenger in the vehicle that was struck during the collision. The lawsuit is filed against the estate of Jennifer Liston, who drove the car that struck the vehicle Pazin was an occupant of, and Bruce Greenberg of Wheaton. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.
The lawsuit is summarized in the December 9, 2014 Kane County Chronicle article titled “Second lawsuit filed in 2012 fatal Compton Hills crash.”
An excerpt from this article:
Pazin argues that Liston was negligent in operating the 2003 Nissan Altima that she drove in the crash. Greenberg was the owner of the Altima, and Pazin argues that he negligently entrusted Liston with his car. The complaint also states that Greenberg observed Liston consume alcohol before the Dec. 1 crash.
