Texas resident Don Billings filed a wrongful death suit for the accident that killed his wife Cristina Munguia Billings.

On June 30, Mr. Billings was riding in the passenger’s side while his wife drove their Ford Expedition on US highway 79 when it rolled over, allegedly due to the tire’s tread belt separation.

Cristina sustained major head injuries and died on the spot. Don also suffered grave physical injuries.

The suit was filed against Continental Tire Americas and Ford Motor Co. on Wednesday, October 2 in the Eastern District of Texas, Marshall Division.

The defendants are accused of negligence for failing to adequately manufacture the tire.

Woman’s estate could win millions after Six Flags mishap

Posted on August 2nd, 2013 No Comments

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office recently released more information regarding the death of 52-year-old Rosy Esparza who died after falling from Arlington-based Six Flags Over Texas’s Texas Giant roller coaster on Friday, July 19.

According to the medical examiner’s office in a statement released on Tuesday, July 23, she was seated in the third row, “and as the carts began the steep descent from the first large hill of track, she was ejected from her seat, falling freely for an approximate distance of 75 feet, striking a support metal beam and then coming to rest on the metal roof of the tunnel.”

Analysts, watchdogs, and attorneys have surmised that Six Flags and the roller coaster’s manufacturer, Gerstlauer Amusement Rides, will find themselves in trouble if the victim’s family files a wrongful death lawsuit, with some forecasting an “eight-figure recovery.”

According to the Dallas Morning News, Arlington police have ruled out foul play as the cause of the victim’s death.

Pilot had no experience descending Boeing 777 in SF

Asiana Airlines said on Sunday, July 7, that the pilot involved in the fatal plane crash in San Francisco had never previously landed a Boeing 777 at San Francisco International Airport. However, a report did state that pilot Lee Kang-gook had a record of 43 hours of flying a Boeing 777 and had flown from South Korea to San Francisco several times.

Data recorders from the ill-fated plane showed that the accident happened just seconds after the pilot tried to stop the landing process. Two teenagers were killed and hundreds of passengers were wounded in the accident.

Deborah Hersman said that data from the plane’s recorder are still being investigated, and people should refrain from drawing conclusions.
