A Nebraska woman’s suing over the death of a Council Bluffs woman last July. One summer day in 2003 Michelle Fergus was riding in a van on the freeway in Omaha when a concrete block dropped from a bridge smashed through the windshield, killing her. Her mother filed a lawsuit on Monday, naming Omaha, Douglas county and the state of Nebraska as defendants, asking for unspecified damages and claiming the bridge should have had a fence along its sides to prevent such acts of vandalism. Nancy Fergus also says police should have scheduled more patrols of the bridge since there had been problems before with people throwing things from it. A group of teens responsible eventually went to trial and today two of the culprits are facing prison time and a third is on probation.
