The father of Brianne Prieto, the Lodi High School student who was hit by a car and killed on the way to her bus stop last year, has filed a wrongful death suit asking for more than $10 million.
Andrew Prieto filed suit against the driver and passenger of the car that hit his child, as well as the county, the city of Lodi and the Lodi Unified School District. His other daughter, Valerie, is also named as a plaintiff in the suit. She is seeking restitution for medical expenses. Some of the money, if awarded, will go to an estate trust on Brianne’s behalf.
The suit requests $5 million for a wrongful death, $5 million for pain and suffering, $65,000 for medical expenses and $20,000 for funeral costs.
