The son of the Pearland couple killed in a Thanksgiving Day pileup on Interstate 10 wants the court to preserve their vehicle so it can be examined by experts.

Vincent Leggio Jr. filed a temporary restraining order Nov. 26 in Jefferson County District Court against C.R. England, Richardo Fernando Kerr, TNT Wrecker Service and Top Gun Wrecker Service and Recovery.

In his complaint, Vincent Leggio Jr. claim both of his parents were riding in a 2007 white Chevrolet Suburban, which was traveling east on Interstate 10 in Beaumont on Nov. 22 when defendant Kerr, who was driving a 2008 Freightliner tractor hauling a 2008 International trailer, struck their vehicle.

In the collision, Vincent Leggio Sr. and Debra Leggio died, according to the complaint.

Vincent Leggio Jr. is asking the court to allow experts access to the vehicles before they are damaged, altered or destroyed.

“Without the opportunity for the experts to view the vehicles in this condition, movant’s experts would be deprived of necessary and valuable information and, perhaps, the opportunity to present an essential element of movant’s cause of action,” the suit states.

In his complaint, Vincent Leggio Jr. is seeking a temporary restraining order that would prevent the defendants from altering or disposing of the vehicles, plus other relief the court deems just.

Paul F. Ferguson Jr. of Provost Umphrey Law Firm in Beaumont will be representing him.

The case has been assigned to Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court.

Case No. E193-633
