Family Sues In Ex-Vik’s Fatal Crash

The parents of one Coeur d’Alene teen killed in a single-vehicle crash in September 2010 are suing the people they say caused their son’s death. Tim and Paula Austin, along with Jessica Duran, the lone survivor of the crash, filed a complaint for damages for the death of 19-year-old Devon Austin (pictured in SR file photo) on June 3 in Twin Falls County 5th District Court. They name Kade Laughlin, Ryan Balles, Colt Robinson, Naccona Tegan Robinson and Ryan Reinhardt, the driver of the car, as defendants in the death of Austin, who came to Twin Falls last year to play baseball for the College of Southern Idaho. Both Austin and Reinhardt died at the scene near Filer around 1 a.m. on Sept. 12, 2010/Bradley Guire, Twin Falls Times-News. More here.
