(AP) — A mother is suing The Weather Channel for $125 million over the death of her son, who was killed in a crash with storm chasers who worked for the cable network.
Karen Di Piazza alleges Kelley Williamson and Randall Yarnall, who had a show called “Storm Wranglers,” ran a stop sign on a road southeast of Lubbock in March 2017 as they were chasing a tornado.READ MORE: CTA Orange, Green Line Service Partially Halted, Loop 'L' Trains Snagged Due To Medical Emergency At Roosevelt
