A man is being sued for his alleged involvement in a car crash that killed a pregnant mother and her three children last year. The wrongful death lawsuit was filed on January 12 on behalf of Edward Schmidt, the husband and father of the victims. Sean Woulfe, 25 years-old, faces 16 counts of reckless driving for the July 24 crash. The prosecution alleges that Mr. Woulfe was driving east in his Chevrolet S10 pickup truck at a speed more than 20 mph over the posted limit when he ran a stop sign before crashing. He is accused of striking a 2014 Subaru Outback carrying Mr. Schmidt’s pregnant wife, Lindsey, and their three sons. Lindsey Schmidt, just 29 years-old, and their 19 month-old son, Kaleb, were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. Their 4 year-old, Weston, died at the Comer’s Children Hospital in Chicago, Illinois the next day, and 6 year-old Owen died two days later at the same hospital.
