Utah doghouse highway death results in wrongful death lawsuit

A northern Utah woman whose husband and 4-year-old daughter were killed when a doghouse fell out of a man’s truck and caused a highway pileup has filed a wrongful death lawsuit.

Alyssa Chambers filed the suit seeking $300,000 in damages. She is suing the man who had the doghouse in his truck, a woman who rear-ended their car and the woman’s employer since she was driving for her job.

The August 2015 crash started when a large wooden doghouse slid out of Joshua Sinykin’s truck during rush hour on Interstate 15 in Weber County, authorities said. Several cars were forced to slow down, including the Chamber’s vehicle carrying Alyssa and Ryan Chambers, their two daughters and the family dog inside, the lawsuit said.

A car driven by Uchenna Uzoh smashed the Chamber’s vehicle, forcing it to collide with a semitrailer. Ryan Chambers and the couple’s young daughter, Evelynn Chambers died. The family dog, Archer, also died. Alyssa Chambers and their other daughter, Kaya Chambers, were injured but survived.
