PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The estate of a 30-year-old pregnant woman who died when a tree fell onto her SUV has filed a $9.5 million lawsuit against the owners of the property that the tree was on.
The Oregonian/OregonLive reported Wednesday that the estate of Kristi Leigh Oliver is also suing Multnomah County, claiming the landowners had tried to get the necessary permission from the county to cut down the tree because they could see it was rotting, but the county wouldn't approve.
The 100-foot-tall (30-meter-tall) cedar crashed onto the driver's side of Oliver's 2001 Ford Explorer on March 1, 2016.
County spokesman Mike Pullen said he hadn't seen the lawsuit and couldn't immediately comment.
Neither of the property owners could be reached for comment.
