The father of a 17-year-old honor student killed in a January automobile crash on Interstate 95 has sued the contractor and engineering firms in charge of a road construction project. The driver of the vehicle that rear-ended the car in which the teen was a passenger was also sued. Philip Davis, on behalf of his son, Brian Davis, alleges that abrupt lane closures and inadequate lighting and warnings caused the four-vehicle crash on January 8th. Astaldi Construction Corp. and Corradino Group Inc., as well as Mark Best (the driver), are the named defendants. The Chevrolet truck driven by Best rear-ended the Toyota Camry in which young Davis was a passenger. The wreck occurred near a construction zone. Brian Davis was coming home from an English study class at the time. At Palm Beach Gardens High School, the young man was captain of the swim team and also a member of the varsity track team. As we have reported, construction sites can be very dangerous. Construction companies and others working in the area have a duty to take the steps necessary to protect the motoring public. Persons operating vehicles in construction zones also have a duty to be extra careful. This case is an example of what can happen when safety measures aren’t in place and aren’t being enforced.
