Family sues over traffic crash that killed 5

By Associated Press

HILO, Hawaii (AP) The family of a Naalehu woman killed in a Kau car crash is suing the estate of the deceased other driver.

The Hawaii Tribune-Herald reports the lawsuit was filed Oct. 9 on behalf of Trinidad Ballesteros' children and others.

Ballesteros was driving a pickup Jan. 23 near Mile 54 Highway 11. It was struck head-on by a sedan driven by 73-year-old Donald Ingoglia, a Sacramento, Calif., attorney.

The truck caught fire. Ballesteros and passenger Richard Taylor of Naalehu died at the scene.

The crash also killed Ingoglia, his son and his grandson.

Ingoglia suffered a heart attack before the car crossed the centerline. The lawsuit claims Ingoglia drove too fast and was negligent.

The lawsuit names the trustee of the Ingoglia family trust and Ingoglia's estate executor as defendants.
