The surviving family of an elderly Trabuco Canyon woman run over and killed by a U.S. Postal truck in October 2013 has filed a $60 million wrongful death lawsuit inside Orange County's Ronald Reagan Federal Courthouse.
Mary Honda, 85, had been placing mail in her mailbox at her Teaberry Lane residence when postman Adam Stewart Rojas ran over her "several times" and caused serious trauma, according to the lawsuit.
The wounds included injuries to Honda's head, neck, shoulder, right forearm and ribs. She also suffered a laceration to her heart and hemorrhaging in her kidneys. She arrived at Mission Hospital alive but died several hours later. Orange County Sheriff's Department records show that Rojas called for aid after the accident.More »
