WENTZVILLE, Mo. (KMOV.com) - A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) by the family of a woman and her two children who were killed in a crash in January. 

Relatives of Jacqueline Faudi, 36, Autumn Faudi, 6, and Kaydence Miller, the victims of the January 21 crash, claim MoDOT was negligent in failing to install a cable barrier along Highway 61 in Wentzville.

According to crash reports, Faudi’s vehicle was struck from behind by a vehicle that slipped on ice near North Point Prairie Road. After crashing into the back of the vehicle, both vehicles traveled across the median and were struck by a southbound traveling SUV.

Following the fatal crash, leaders from Lincoln and St. Charles Counties called for changes to be made along the stretch of road.

Officials said many cars speed on the stretch of highway and they hope a crackdown on speeding will reduce the problem until changes are made to the road.

The driver of the vehicle that rear-ended Faudi’s is also named in the lawsuit.
