Woman Who Survived Limo Crash That Left Four of Her Friends Dead Files Lawsuit
A survivor of the tragic limo crash that killed four friends in Long Island, New York earlier this month has filed a lawsuit over the incident.
Olga Lipets, 24, filed a suit on Thursday against the limo driver, the limo company, the pickup truck driver and the company he co-owns for unspecified damages.
Lipets suffered fractures in her left leg. Her jaw was broken and, according to her lawyer, it is wired shut.
The incident involved seven friends and a bride-to-be, as well as the drivers of both the limo and pickup.
The group had just left a winery for a birthday party on July 18 when authorities say the limo attempted to turn around in the road and was nearly sliced in half by a pickup truck.
Brittney M. Schulman, 23, Lauren Baruch, 24, Stephanie Belli, 23, and Amy R. Grabina, 23, all lost their lives in the crash in Cutchogue.
Other survivors of the crash include Joelle Dimonte, 25, Melissa Angela Crai, 23, Alicia Arundel, 24.
The pickup driver, 55-year-old Steven Romeo, has pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor DWI charge. His attorney had no immediate comment on the lawsuit.
