Amy Skiba, 43, was driving with two children, both 12 years old, when an oncoming driver lost control of his vehicle, crossed the center line, and struck Skiba’s vehicle head-on. Skiba suffered fatal injuries. She was survived by her husband and three children, one of whom is an adult.
Skiba’s adult child and representative for the two minor children sued Eaton Asphalt Paving Co., which completed a resurfacing project on the road approximately two months before this incident.
The Skiba family asserted that the defendant pavement company negligently performed the project by choosing not to mill the road and install a safety wedge as required by its contract with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
