AMHERST, Mass. (AP) - The family of a University of Massachusetts Amherst student killed when she was struck by a vehicle has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the driver.

The Daily Hampshire Gazette (https://bit.ly/1J4ixUH ) reports that the parents of 20-year-old Hannah Frilot said in the suit filed Monday that the driver violated several laws when she drove her vehicle into their daughter last July. The suit seeks unspecified damages.

Frilot, of Scottsdale, Arizona, was walking her bicycle in a bike lane in Amherst when she was struck from behind by 64-year-old Cynthia May, of Orleans.

Paramedics pronounced her dead at the scene.

May has pleaded not guilty in Superior Court to negligent motor vehicle homicide.

A message left for May’s civil attorney, Michael Callan, was not returned Tuesday.
