Wrongful death suits progressing in GSU nursing student tragedy
Attorneys still gathering evidence, deposing witnesses
W 042315 GSU MEMORIAL 04
Georgia Southern University nursing students walk to their seats during a memorial service on campus Thursday, April 23, 2015, for five fellow nursing students who died in an accident on I-16 Wednesday. Wrongful death lawsuits are progressing as a result of the tragedy.
Eleven months after five Georgia Southern University students were killed in a tragic accident on Interstate 16 in Bryan County, attorneys are still collecting evidence and questioning witnesses. Caitlyn Baggett of Millen, Emily Clark of Powder Springs; Abbie DeLoach of Savannah; Morgan Bass of Leesburg and Catherine McKay Pittman of Alpharetta all lost their lives April 22, 2015 when a tractor trailer rig plowed into them as they sat in their vehicles in a line of traffic halted due to clean-up efforts from a previous wreck. Fellow students Megan Richards of Loganville and Brittany McDaniel of Reidsville, who were passengers in two of the seven vehicles involved, survived.
