Wrongful death suit filed over deadly snowplow accident

The daughter of the Moberly man who died in a crash involving a Boone County snowplow has filed a wrongful death lawsuit.

ABC 17 reports Bethany Kelly wants compensation over the accident Feb. 15 on Highway 63 north of Columbia. Troopers said plow truck driver Brandon Wainman was trying to cross the highway at Breedlove Drive. Mark Swindell’s SUV crashed into the side of the truck, killing the 59-year-old.

The suit reportedly claims Wainman, 25, did not drive carefully enough. It also blames Boone County for not having certain safety systems on the plow, and not training Wainman properly.
