Mother of Kearney Crash Victim Files Wrongful Death Suit
Rebecca Addy filed the lawsuit last week in Lancaster County District Court against Carlos Lopez of Lopez Trucking and Lyle Carman. Carman was driving a truck last June when it hit 23-year-old Raven Addy-Cruz’s car on Interstate 80 in Lincoln.
Raven Addy-Cruz died days later. Her husband, Edgar Cruz, suffered eight broken ribs. Their 13-month-old daughter suffered a broken leg.
Prosecutors say Carman was under the influence of meth when his truck struck Raven Addy-Cruz’s car. Carmen pleaded not guilty last month to manslaughter in connection with the crash. He is awaiting trial.
