The wife of a Virginia police officer who died in a traffic accident last year has filed a $1 million suit against the reckless driver of the vehicle that caused the accident.
The complaint was filed in February in Circuit Court and alleges that Shaun Mowbray was driving his vehicle in a manner that was careless and reckless when it crashed into the sport utility of Officer Randall Vaiden.
Vaiden was a school resource officer at Green Run High School in Virginia Beach. On the day of the crash, October 10, he was off duty and driving on Holland Road close to the intersection of Diana Lee Drive. The 30-year-old officer was killed instantly in the accident.
Reckless driving charges were filed against Mowbray and on March 20 he is scheduled to appear in General District Court.
