We told you this summer about a horrific suicide attempt gone wrong on I-88 near Lisle. On August 4, a 43-year old Aurora man apparently tried to kill himself by swerving his Porsche into oncoming traffic and accelerating while throwing money out of the window. The Porsche slammed head-on into a Toyota Corolla and killed a 37-year old woman and her 75-year old father. The Corolla’s driver, the 42-year old husband of the woman, remains disabled as a result of the auto accident. All of the victims were from Elmhurst.The Porsche driver actually survived the accident, but fell into a coma and died from his injuries about a month later. The coroner ruled his death a suicide, though complications from Huntington’s Disease were also a factor.Now we have learned that the surviving family members of the victims in the Toyota have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the estate of the Aurora man. The suit reportedly seeks at least $50,000 in damages for each passenger in the vehicle. However, this lawsuit may take some time to resolve. First, lawsuits against the estates of deceased persons usually take longer than normal because of the logistics and bureaucracy associated with the people who are in charge of the estate. Secondly, evidence indicates that one of the reasons that the 43-year old man wanted to kill himself was because of his dire financial situation. There were reports that he had closed his dental practice and that his mortgage was underwater; he also reportedly faced legal costs incurred from previous drunk driving charges and unpaid medical bills for treatment of his disease. All this means that the plaintiffs may have to “wait in line” behind other creditors and hope that there is something left in the man’s estate that they can receive as part of a settlement or jury award.
