What triggered the lawsuit? According to the lawsuit, 32-year-old Jessica Noel collided on September 25th with the grain truck driven by Specht "at the intersection of 71st Street South and 263rd Street West north of Viola, Kansas". The suit states that Specht "drove the stop sign at high speed and hit Noel's SUV with such force that it ripped her vehicle in half."

As a result of the collision, Noel and their three children Anaiah Brady (10), Jeffrey Thompson III (4) and Hank Thompson (4 months) died at the scene of the accident. The fourth child, Mack Thompson, 1, was "taken to a district hospital where he later died."

Mark and Carrie Brady are the grandparents of one of the children, Anaiah Brady. According to the lawsuit, Anaiah has no surviving parents as her father died when she was a toddler. Right now the Bradys are demanding more than $ 75,000 in damages, arguing that Specht and L.B. White Trucking "was negligent because the driver did not obey a traffic control signal, did not give right of way and did not look properly." The court also claims that Specht was "driving at excessive speed when he allegedly put a stop sign at the intersection".

As Lt. Benjamin Blick, a spokesman for the Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office, commenting on the case, said he said the investigation into the crash was still ongoing. Blick added that Specht's Gran Truck, "going east, should have stopped at the stop sign posted on 71st Street, but didn't." He added, however, "There is no stop sign on South 263rd Street, which is where Noel was with her children at the time of the crash." He said:

"The accident investigation team is looking at the report. If they haven't already, they'll be issuing some search warrants on the vehicles to gather additional information." If the electronics contain potential digital information, such as: B. the airbag modules of the vehicles, you should take a look at them. Once they have all the information, they will take it to the Sedgwick County Attorney's Office. The DA office will then decide whether to bring charges in the case. "
