A lawyer for a Detroit couple has filed notice it will sue the Canadian government, the province of Ontario and the town of Lakeshore for failing to control and manage traffic during this month's fiery chain-reaction crash near Windsor, Ont.
Windsor lawyer Martin Wunder said in Saturday's editions of the Detroit Free Press that he filed notice on behalf of the couple -- Alan and Claudette Bond -- and two Canadian clients.
Officials have said that fog and poor visibility are suspected of having played a part in the Sept. 3 crash that involved about 80 vehicles and led to the temporary closing of Highway 401. Seven people were killed.
Wunder said the fog isn't an excuse. "This isn't the first fog that's ever appeared in North America," he said.
