4 sued in connection with fatal West Paris crash

The Associated Press

PARIS — The father of a 16-year-old West Paris girl killed in a car crash last year has sued the driver and three others.

Rebecca Mason's father this week filed suit in Oxford County Superior Court against 19-year-old Kristina Lowe, the driver of the car in which his daughter was a passenger. Mason and a 19-year-old man died in the January 2012 crash.

Jerrold Mason is also suing three people he alleges provided Lowe with alcohol and a place to drink.

The Sun Journal reports the suit alleges "negligence and recklessness" on the part of the defendants.

Lowe has pleaded not guilty to two counts of manslaughter. Police say she was drunk and texting at the time of the crash. Her lawyer has denied that, saying she hit a patch of ice.
