Estate of Edith Schmucker plans to sue for wrongful death

ELKHART COUNTY, Ind. -- Court records show the family of Edith Schmucker may be planning to sue for wrongful death. Schmucker was killed in a two vehicle crash on SR 19 on August 3, that also killed US Rep. Jackie Walorski, Zachery Potts and Emma Thomson, according to investigators.

The court appointed two special administrators for the "sole purpose of collecting damages for wrongful death," records show.

The lawsuit would benefit Schmucker's 17-year-old son.

No lawsuit has been filed at this time.
