CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Two lawsuits have been filed against FedEx Ground Package Systems claiming the shipping giant substantially contributed to the deaths of Cheyenne residents.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1JZaWUr ) that the families of three people who died in a head-on collision on I-80 just east of Cheyenne have filed suit claiming FedEx is responsible for the crash. Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations are also named in both complaints.

The three died in November when a westbound FedEx tractor-trailer veered through the median into eastbound traffic, striking their minivan. Both lawsuits say a tire on the FedEx truck failed, sending the vehicle careening over the median.

Both plaintiffs are seeking more than $75,000 in damages.

A FedEx spokesman said the thoughts and condolences go out to the families.
