LOS ANGELES – The wife of Travis Barker's assistant sued several aviation companies and the estates of two pilots Tuesday over the South Carolina plane crash that killed her husband earlier this year.
Otilia Villar Baker, wife of Chris Baker, filed the suit in Los Angeles Superior court, alleging negligence and wrongful death. The lawsuit was also filed on behalf of the Bakers' young son, Sebastian.
The suit claims the companies contributed to the Sept. 19 crash that also killed the two pilots and Barker's bodyguard. Barker and musical collaborator Adam Goldstein, known as DJ AM, were severely injured.
The suit seeks damages for pain and anguish Baker suffered before his death, loss of earnings, companionship, repayment of funeral and other costs.
