Lawsuit filed against former executive in fatal crash
NORTH HAVERHILL (AP) - A lawsuit has been filed against a former Fortune 500 executive who admitted he killed a pregnant woman, her fiancé and their fetus in what he called a failed suicide attempt when he drove his truck across the I-89 median into oncoming traffic in 2013.
The Valley News reports the estate of Amanda Murphy sued Robert Dellinger in Grafton County on Feb. 20, the day after he pleaded guilty to causing her death and Jason Timmons' of Wilder, Vermont. He also pleaded guilty to assault for the death of their fetus.
The lawsuit seeks damages for Dellinger's "wanton, reckless and grossly negligent" conduct.
Dellinger hasn't been served with the suit yet. Dellinger's lawyer said he wasn't attempting suicide, but rather suffering from delirium due to a "toxic regime" of medications.
