Mother files suit in crash that killed her 2 kids

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) -- A Protivin woman is suing a trucking company involved in a deadly crash that killed her two children in December 2006.

Nicole Sanders filed the lawsuit against Lee Steyer Trucking of Soldiers Grove, Wis., and driver William Creager, of Westby, Wis., in U.S. District Court in Cedar Rapids.

Sanders' children, 3-year-old Raven Williams and 2-year-old Wesley Williams, died in the crash on U.S. Highway 63 near New Hampton.

Authorities say Sanders' vehicle lost control on the icy highway and collided with a van. Both vehicles came to rest in the road before being struck by the semitrailer driven by the Wisconsin driver.

The lawsuit alleges that Creager was driving too fast for conditions and failed to take action to avoid the crash.
