AUSTIN (KXAN) — The man who lost his wife and 12-year-old son in a crash with a mobile home in Bastrop County is now suing the three companies he believes to be responsible.
Titan Factory Direct Homes, Inc., Lechuga Construction Mobile Home Services and Segovia Trucking are named as the three defendants.
The crash happened on Feb. 9 on Farm to Market 535, southwest of Smithville.
Deborah Jackson, 50, was driving a Dodge Durango in the westbound lane when she struck the mobile home going eastbound. DPS says the mobile home was partially in the westbound lane. The crash killed Deborah, her 12-year-old son Blake Jackson, who was in the back passenger seat, and injured two others in the vehicle, Deborah’s other son, 13, and her 6-year-old nephew.
Jackson’s husband, Christopher, is listed as the plaintiff in the lawsuit.
On the day of the crash, the mobile home buyer received a call from the delivery truck saying they would be at the arrival site in Smithville at around 5:00 p.m. The lawsuit claims that, unbeknownst to the buyer, that delivery time was impossible, so the delivery employees decided to take a shorter, unauthorized route on a narrow road.
Jackson is seeking damages for the loss of his wife and his son.
