A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against the driver of the dump truck that struck and killed a Department of Transportation driver in March.
Mark Shepherdson, 49, was killed in the crash.
According to State police, the INDOT truck was stationary on northbound Interstate 164, towing an arrow board to alert drivers to change lanes while crews worked on the shoulder.
Police say the dump truck, driven by William M. Hurt, 62, of Boonville, ran into the arrow board and the rear of the INDOT truck, then rolled on its side and spilled.
Hurt is also facing criminal charges in the accident.
