(LOUISIANA)--A wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family of the man killed in a December crash on the Champ Clark Bridge moves to federal court. Stark Brothers Nurseries executive Kyle Brown died after his SUV was hit by cargo that broke loose from a truck driven by Kenneth Davis last December. The lawsuit moves from Saint Charles Circuit Court to the U.S. District Court Eastern District of Missouri.
The family wants a jury trial and damages in excess of 75-thousand dollars. Davis' attorney says any award to the Brown family should be reduced because Brown may have shared some of the blame in the fatal crash.
