Trucker, employer sued for wrongful death in fatal semi accident
CHICAGO — A truck driver and his employer are being sued over a deadly accident in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.
The police report says Zachary Barngrover turned left at 43rd and Ashland last Friday and ran over three people in a crosswalk.
Elizabeth Peralta-Luna and her children Elizabeth and Dylan were killed.
Now the victims’ family is alleging wrongful death — claiming Barngrover was talking on his cellphone while driving, and wasn’t paying attention to the road.
The lawsuit also names Barngrover’s employer, Monson and Sons; there has been no comment from Monson.
