Three civil lawsuits, spawned by 2016 truck crash, move toward trial


January 24, 2018

A lawsuit filed by the wife of a log truck driver killed two years ago in a collision with another truck is slowly working its way toward a scheduled trial date later this year.

A motion to amend the civil complaint by Tamera Lea Nightingale against Robert Gene Mayfield will be heard in Linn County Circuit Court on Jan. 29.

The Linn County District Attorney did not issue any criminal charges against Mayfield for the early-morning Jan. 21, 2016 crash on Highway 20, near Bauman Mill, which resulted in the death of Neil Nightingale, but Mayfield is named as a defendant in three civil cases.
