A $1 million Circuit Court lawsuit has been filed against a woman who allegedly caused a wreck that killed her and her friend.
The suit was filed by the family of Jennifer Friddell against the family of Misty Browning.
Both died in a wreck Nov. 13, 2012, that left their mangled vehicle on its side after striking an ambulance head-on.
The traffic crash involving a 1997 Ford Ranger and a Rural Metro Ambulance was reported around 8:05 a.m. in the 12000 block of Highway 58. The ambulance was transporting a special needs child to a doctor’s appointment (non emergency), southbound on Highway 58. The 1997 Ford Ranger was traveling northbound in the southbound lane for unknown reasons.
The driver of the 1997 Ford Ranger truck, Ms. Browning, 29, and the passenger, Ms. Friddell, 30, both of Georgetown, were pronounced dead at the scene. The five occupants of the Rural Metro Ambulance were transported to area hospitals and treated for minor injuries and released.
The suit was filed by Adam Jeremiah Smith, parent of Tyler Smith. The suit says Tyler Smith was the only child of Ms. Friddell.
It also names Thomas Browning as a defendant, saying he entrusted his vehicle to Misty Browning.
The suit says Ms. Browning suddenly entered the lane where the ambulance was traveling.
It was filed by attorneys Gary Massey and Danny Ellis.
