RENO, Nev. (AP) - The family of a Washington state man who was
killed in September's crash at the Reno Air Races is filing a
wrongful death suit.
It's the latest in a string of similar lawsuits filed after the
crash that killed 11 people and injured 70.
The Reno Gazette-Journal reports that the lawsuit filed by the family of Gregory Morcum accuses Reno Air Racing Association Inc. of holding an unsafe event. Morcum was a spectator at the race.
Association officials say they haven't been served with the
complaint and can't comment.
Among others, the lawsuit also targets the estate of the pilot
whose P-15 Mustang crashed into spectators.
The head of the racing association has said he expects to get
the insurance and permits needed to run the race again this year.
