A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed in a February crash on Highway 135 in Orcutt.

Two people were killed in the crash, which happened shortly before 6:30 a.m. on Feb. 7, near Union Valley Parkway.

The California Highway Patrols says a DUI driver crashed a big rig into the back of another vehicle, killing both people inside.

Family members of one of the victims, 60-year-old Rickie Motley, filed the lawsuit. It names the suspect, Gilbert Patrick Pena, and Sysco Corporation as defendants.
