CHICAGO — The family of a truck driver who prosecutors have alleged was shot and killed by a tow truck driver in a "road rage" incident in Oak Brook, is suing Wes's Service Inc. for the driver's death.
Nicole Munoz, special administrator of the estate of Eduardo Munoz, filed a complaint on June 19 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging the defendant should be made to pay for allowing its employee to carry a pistol in one of its vehicles in violation of company policy.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges Munoz was shot and killed during a road rage incident with one of the defendant's employees, identified as Anthony Tillmon. The plaintiff holds the defendant responsible for allegedly failing to train the driver to prevent road rage incidents.
Tillmon has been charged with first degree murder after he allegedly shot Munoz three times during an altercation on Interstate 88 in Chicago's western suburbs.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $50,000 plus court costs. She is represented by Susan E. Loggans & Associates P.C. in Chicago.
