Personal Injury Lawsuit from Accident on Washington Pike

The Law Offices of Tony Farmer and John Dreiser, on behalf of their client, Sarah Tinder, who saw three people killed in a hit-and-run accident on Washington Pike, has filed a $1 million lawsuit against the accused driver.

In May, Tinder's car stalled when she ran out of gas. She pulled over on the side over the road, put on her emergency lights and called Chasity Elaine Thornell for assistance. Thornell showed up, along with Nelzon Soto, who lived nearby and he offered Tinder gas. Thornell was thanking Soto, when a Ford Explorer being driven by Curtis Harper, struck Soto and Thornell.

Harper allegedly left the scene of the accident; he was later charged with driving under the influence and vehicular homicide.

Thornell who was seven months pregnant at the time, Soto and Thornell's unborn daughter died from the accident.

Tinder is seeking compensation for emotional distress that was caused by the accident. Harper's parents, who owned the Explorer, have also been named in the lawsuit.
