FedEx Faces Wyoming Suits After Trucks Kill Nearby Drivers

April 21, 2015

Two lawsuits have been filed against FedEx Ground Package Systems claiming the shipping giant substantially contributed to the deaths of Cheyenne residents.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reported that the families of two people who died in a head-on collision on I-80 just east of Cheyenne have filed suit claiming FedEx is responsible for the crash. Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations are also named in both complaints.

The pair died in November when a westbound FedEx tractor-trailer veered through the median into eastbound traffic, striking their minivan. Both lawsuits say a tire on the FedEx truck failed, sending the vehicle careening over the median.

A FedEx spokesman said the thoughts and condolences go out to the families.
