Plaistow family injured in crash sues teen’s estate
John and Susan LeBlanc recently filed a lawsuit against the estate of David Augusta III following the deadly accident in Hampstead on Aug. 18, 2012.
Susan LeBlanc was the most seriously injured member of her family. Her passengers, John LeBlanc and their two boys, then ages 5 and 8, were treated for minor injuries. The boys are included as plaintiffs in the suit.
According to the suit, Augusta “negligently operated his motor vehicle” and “failed to travel at a safe and reasonable speed.” The suit also accuses him of failing to stay in his designated lane of travel, failing to keep a safe and proper lookout for other vehicles that day, and failing to take evasive action to avoid striking their van.
The suit seeks unspecified damages within the minimum and maximum jurisdictional limits of the court.
