In a lawsuit brought on behalf of the widower and four young children of a California woman, Rob Ammons blames defects in the family's 1993 Chevrolet Suburban for her fatal injuries.
The Suburban was traveling on an Arizona highway. After contacting the shoulder and then steering the vehicle back onto the main lanes, the Suburban rolled over. The Suburban came to rest on its roof, which had collapsed on top of the woman, killing her.
The lawsuit claims the Suburban was defective and not crashworthy because its roof was weak and easily crushed in rollovers. As the Suburban rolled, the roof collapsed over the young wife and mother, severely compromising her occupant survival space. According to the lawsuit, the woman died of head and neck injuries.
The victim's husband and children were also in the vehicle at the time of the crash. Included in the lawsuit was a claim for the emotional distress inflicted on these family members as they witnessed the fatal injuries sustained by their wife and mother.
