HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. (AP) - A second wrongful death lawsuit has been filed in a wrong-way, head-on collision on Interstate 85 that killed three people.

Multiple media outlets reported the new lawsuit was filed in Hillsborough by Shanice Beard, the mother of 6-year-old Jahnice Beard of Brooklyn, New York.

Forty-nine-year-old Felicia Harris and her friend, 46-year-old Darlene McGee, both of Charlotte, were also killed in the wreck. Harris was Jahnice’s grandmother.

The North Carolina Highway patrol says 20-year-old Chandler Michael Kania of Asheboro, was driving north in the southbound lanes near Hillsborough on July 19 when he hit the vehicle driven by Harris.

Harris’ daughter, 9-year-old Jahnia King, was seriously injured.

Shanice Beard makes allegations in her lawsuit similar to those made by McGee’s daughter, Deseante Jones, in a lawsuit last month.
