The family of a woman killed in a boating accident two years ago has filed a wrongful death lawsuit.
Fifty-seven-year-old Lane Alden, 57, of Phillipsburg, N.J., was ejected from a boat that capsized on the Delaware River in Harmony Twp., N.J., on June 23, 2012.
Her body was found several days later near the shore, in Williams Township, Pennsylvania. An autopsy showed she died of blunt force trauma, as a result of the boat accident.
The operator of the boat at the time of the accident, Donald Jessamine, along with another passenger -- Jerry Robbins --were able to get to the shore safely after the boat capsized, officials said.
Jessamine, 63, of Phillipsburg, was charged with vehicular homicide, boating while intoxicated, speeding and related charges.
Police said Jessamine's blood alcohol concentration was .09%, over the legal limit of .08%.
On June 23, the administatrix of Alden's estate, her daughter Erin Alden, filed a lawsuit against Jessamine and the boat's owner, Wayne George.
Lane Alden is also survived by a son, Jack Alden.
