(KSL News) Last night we told you about a lawsuit filed in connection with a fatal accident in Provo Canyon.

Last October, 27-year-old Lorna Lister was killed when a dump truck veered into her lane. Tests show the driver didn't suffer a health problem nor was he using drugs or alcohol.

Lister's mother, Eve Hansen, filed the lawsuit against Ames Construction and the truck driver, Thomas Landers.

We reported that Hansen thought the driver may have crossed lanes intentionally. Hansen called us today to say that's not completely accurate.

She clarifies that she doesn't know why Landers entered the paved road, and one of the reasons she's filing the lawsuit is to find out why he did.


Wednesday's Story (KSL News) It's been nearly 10 months since a Lindon woman was killed in an accident in Provo Canyon, and her mother still has questions.

Lorna Lister was killed when a heavy dump truck veered into oncoming traffic and crushed her car last October.

Tests determined the truck driver, Thomas Sanders, did not suffer a health problem, nor was he using drugs or alcohol.

Hansen has filed a lawsuit against Ames Construction and driver Sanders because she thinks there was negligence on someone's part.

Hansen said, "It is possible that he was just following regular procedure and driving on the road to go down to get another load. The vehicles are far too wide to enter onto the paved road, that's why it's illegal to be on there."

We have asked Ames Construction for a response to the lawsuit, but have yet to receive one.
