JOLIET, Ill.- A northern Illinois man whose pregnant partner and three children were killed in a auto crash is suing a male accused in the accident.
The( Joliet) Herald-News reports Edward Schmidt filed a wrongful death lawsuit Jan. 12 against 25 -year-old Sean B. Woulfe of Beecher. The accident in July killed 29 -year-old Lindsey Schmidt and her 6-year-old, 4-year-old and 1-year-old sons. Edward Schmidt is endeavouring at the least $50,000 in shatterings for each of the deaths.
Woulfe has pleaded not guilty to reckless homicide fees. Attorneys say he was rushing and went through a stop sign before the gate-crash in Beecher, about 40 miles( 65 kilometers) south of Chicago.
Woulfe’s attorney rejected provide comments on the lawsuit, citing a court order prohibiting attorneys and defense attorneys from talking to reporters about the case.
