A woman was killed in a construction accident in Southboro last year. The family now filed a wrongful death lawsuit against National Grid. National Grid was conducting a test drive of a truck trailer-backhoe because they thought there was a problem with the combination. The backhoe fell on the car, killing a woman. Her daughter and two grandchildren were also injured.
The trailer jackknifed, the backhoe rolled off and toppled onto Wang’s minivan. However, the plaintiffs argue that the National Grid truck should have never been on the highway because the company knew it was dangerous. However, the company drove the vehicle on I-495 anyway on a busy Friday afternoon.
