OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Ogden police are facing a third lawsuit stemming from a fatal high-speed chase from 2005.
Jessica Nelson, 21, and Philemon "Bob" Ellis, 62, were killed in the Dec. 13, 2005 crash after being broadsided by Eddie Raymond Bustos, who was being pursued by police.
Bustos was traveling at about 75 mph when he ran a red light and hit Nelson's car.
The lawsuit was filed Nov. 30 in Utah's U.S. District Court by an attorney for Ellis' son, Marvin Ellis. The wrongful death lawsuit contends the police department failed to train, supervise and institute an adequate pursuit policy.
An earlier lawsuit was thrown out of state court.
Nelson's family also has a lawsuit pending.
Bustos was convicted of automobile homicide charges. He's serving time in the Utah State Prison.
