Family files $124M lawsuit in carbon monoxide deaths

Posted: Updated:
CLARKSVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The family of one of five people who died from carbon monoxide poisoning in a rented camper at the Clarksville Speedway in September 2011 is now suing the U.S. Army.

Kathryn Over, 27, died while attending an annual charity event sponsored by the organization Bikers Who Care.

The five had rented an RV from a program called Gear-to-Go at Fort Campbell.

Over's family claims employees there never inspected the carbon monoxide detector in the RV and rented it without batteries that would have assured the detector could function.

In addition to Over, her husband, 27-year-old Jonathan Michael Over; 39-year-old Timothy Bryan Stone; 32-year-old Allison Elizabeth Bagwell-Wyatt; and 38-year-old James Franklin Wall also died while they slept, and the medical examiner's report said all five had more than 45 percent of carbon monoxide saturation levels in their blood.

A generator sat outside the camper where the five people were sleeping, and all the doors and windows were closed at the time of the accident.

The lawsuit seeks $124 million in damages.
