widow of Chris Baker, Travis Barker's assistant who was killed in a
September plane crash, has slapped a tire and aviation company with a
wrongful death lawsuit.
Otilia Villar Baker and her son Sebastian claim that the pilots
"negligently decided to abort and/or reject the takeoff," TMZ.com
reports, meaning that they knew the tires were faulty but went ahead
with the flight anyway.
L.A. County Superior Courts will rule on the suit, which asserts
that Baker suffered "severe pre and post-impact injury, damage to
property, pain, suffering, and emotional distress, and ultimately
[death] due to fatal injuries sustained from said crash including but
not limited to the post-impact fire. The death was not immediate."
Barker and fellow passenger DJ AM suffered severe burns in the crash. They were the plane's only survivors.
Mrs. Baker seeks an unspecified amount of compensation.
