MoDOT Sued After 8th Death Due To Crash
The intersection of Riverview Drive and Scranton Avenue in North St. Louis has proven to be a dangerous one over the years. Eight people have lost their lives in car crashes at this location. People are saying it's more than just coincidence, and they believe that MoDOT is ultimately to blame.
A Wrongful Death Lawsuit is Filed Against MoDOT
The family of one of the victims of a crash at that intersection is suing MoDOT for their role in their loved one's death. They allege that the roadway's design is a major part of the problem. Bad signage and the fact that MoDOT has made unreasonable changes in the road are to blame, according to the family.
MoDOT is responsible for maintaining the road, but the configuration of the roadway is very confusing. Between 2002 and 2008, there were no deaths from accidents in this area, but that changed once construction began in 2008.
