The family of a truck driver killed in last week’s collapse of a pedestrian bridge near Florida International University in Miami has filed a lawsuit against two companies involved in the project, saying the roadway below should have been shut down as work continued on the span. Six people, including Rolando Fraga, 60, were killed when the 950-ton pedestrian bridge collapsed on cars driving on Southwest Eighth Street shortly after 1:30 p.m. last Thursday. "Safety is paramount in construction cases, and MCM knows that,” attorney Christos Lagos, whose firm is representing Fraga’s widow and his 15-year-old son, said at a news conference in Miami on Thursday, referring to Munilla Construction Management, the contractor.
