The mother of a man killed in a "horrific" 2017 car accident filed a $125 million wrongful death lawsuit Tuesday against the Weather Channel for its role in the crash. On March 28, 2017, the lawsuit alleges that storm chasers Kelley Williamson and Randall Yarnall — who were contractors for the Weather Channel — drove past a stop sign while storm chasing near Spur, Texas. With a speed estimated at 70 mph, their car smashed into another car driven by Corbin Lee Jaeger, 25, a storm spotter for the National Weather Service. All three men were killed instantly in the wreck, which happened at a remote intersection near the town of Spur, about 55 miles southeast of Lubbock.
