The husband of a Maine teacher who was killed when her van was struck by another driver has filed a lawsuit accusing the other driver of negligence. The lawsuit alleges that the other driver was driving too fast for the poor winter conditions, was not following traffic rules, didn’t “heed the presence” of the teacher’s van and “failed generally to adhere to appropriate standards of care.” The lawsuit seeks compensation for emotional distress, the loss of companionship, and money for expenses such as funeral costs, child care cost increases and the loss of his wife’s future earnings, but an exact amount has not been determined.
