The widow of a Longwood Police Officer, killed when an apparent prank went horribly wrong, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit.
Carol Strohsal is suing two teenagers who placed a plastic chair on Interstate 4 as a prank, and the driver who ran the off-duty officer down.
Sgt. Karl Strohsal swerved to miss the chair on I-4, but crashed his car into a guardrail. When he got out to check the damage, he was run over and killed.
The wrongful death suit asks for an amount exceeding $15,000, which is the threshold for filing in civil court.
An accessory to the I-4 prank has already settled with the family.
Dwayne Love, the driver, was sentenced to six months in jail for DUI in connection with the incident.
