The parents of a Muncie teenager killed when he was struck by a vehicle earlier this month have filed a wrongful death suit against the driver of the car that struck their son.
15-year old Nathan Bailey-Skinner was struck and killed December 3rd as he and a friend were walking along Nebo Road northwest of the Muncie Meijer store. His parents filed the wrongful death suit against the driver of the car that struck their son...58-year old William Terhune. The suit claims Terhune was careless and distracted as he drove his vehicle that night.
Investigators say the youths were walking along an unlighted portion of Nebo Road when the accident happened at about 6 o’clock that evening.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified monetary damages.
