County Sued Over Fatal VA Van Crash

Civil lawsuits have been filed against Chisago County in connection with a crash that involved a county van transporting veterans from the VA Medical Center at Fort Snelling.

Motorist Bobby Tomlin, of Mahtomedi, was killed in the crash on Interstate 35W in New Brighton. Van driver Richard Carroll, who worked for Chisago County's Veterans Services program, lost consciousness at the wheel and also died.

Attorney Paul Downes, who is representing Jessica Tomlin, argues in court documents that Chisago County is responsible because of its "negligent hiring and retention" of Carroll, 78, who had a documented history of heart trouble.
