Family of victims in triple fatality files lawsuit

BARNETT, Mo. (AP) — The family of a man who died along with his wife and son in a traffic accident is suing the driver of the other vehicle in the accident.

Mary Robinson of Holts Summit is suing 19-year-old Emily Frakes of Eldon.

Frakes was driving a car that collided Feb. 28 with a vehicle driven by Marty Wilcox of Eldon. Wilcox, his wife and his 3-year-old son died in the accident on Highway 52 near Tuscumbia in Miller County. The couple’s 2-day-old son survived.

The lawsuit claims Frakes was careless and negligent before the accident.

Frakes was released from the hospital on April 6.

Her mother told the Lake Sun Leader ( ) that Frakes feels terrible about the accident but added “That is what it was. It was an accident.”
