Mourning Mother of Robert Nugent Sues Coral Springs

Three teens died in a 2009 crash.
A woman who lost her son in a 2009 car crash that took the lives of three Coral Springs teens is now suing the city, claiming the municipality's botched maintenance of roadways led to the high-schoolers' deaths.

Naomi Concepcion, mother of Robert S. Nugent Jr., is demanding money from Coral Springs and Fence Masters Inc., according to a lawsuit recently filed in the Broward County Civil Court. 

Nugent, along with his friends Sean Maxey and Anthony Almonte, died on November 15, 2009. Maxey got into a minor car accident on University Drive but lost control of his car and spun into a canal immediately after nudging the fender of another vehicle. The three teens, who were celebrating homecoming that night, drowned. One passenger, Evan Sinisgalli, survived. 

Concepcion claims that the water body along the drive used to be blocked off by a rock wall. The city replaced the wall with a guardrail in November 2008. Concepcion, according to the suit, claims that there was a gap in the railing. This space allowed the car to careen into the water, the suit argues. 

Also, Fence Masters' design didn't comply with the latest state regulations, creating "unreasonable and foreseeable" risks that could have been avoided, the filing claims.

Why is she trying to blame others for the driving errors of her late son's late friend? That was a controversial accident because of the alleged partying and such. She would be better served to continue mourning and not be so quick to reassign blame or fault. Life is short; lawsuits like this one can be drawn out a long time.

The only way to get attention for some obvious problems is when someone is hurt.  I am sure there will be some a s s holes who will criticize the suit, but I will bet the "we'll get sued if we don't . . . " will stop something like this in the future.

This guardrail was totally installed incorrectly.  First the guardrail does not meet DOT guidelines and second the guardrail is shorter that the canal itself.  If someone had to swerve because a racoon ran in front of the car, the same could happen to someone else.  Someone needs to stand up and make a statement and ALL canals should meet DOT guidelines.  We should NOT have a false sense of security.

Its about making the road safe.  That is why we have concrete dividers on interstates (my Dad used to tell me about the PA Turnpike back in the 50's - hills, sharp turns, big trucka and no speed limit!)  Bet if you go by that area - no safety devices.  It sounds like they removed what was there.  Probably paid more for some sh itti guardrail.  The fact is - the kids would still be alive (probably with some bruises, but alive) if the car had not gone into the canal.  Change a few details - group of 40 year-olds on way to meeting.  It was a minor crash.  If was on another road there would have been some torn sod and broken signs.   It is a simple thing - if proper barrier in that area - no drowning.

We don't have to defend our actions to people that don't understand our loss. If they were in the same boat they would also want to prevent things like this from happening to others and these days the only way people seem to get it is if it hits them in the pocketbook...sadly enough.

The fact is the driver and passengers were PARTYING. hit a car, then the driver threw the car in reverse (to get away) and put the car in the canal.

and the cause of the deaths was the lack of the guard rail?  

had nothing to do with partying, hitting a car, then trying to get away? 

its the entitlement generation! 

I deserve something if anything bad happens.  never mind if it was my fault.

Your right Carmen, but I just cannot believe the amount of criticism since the accident.  These boys were 15 & 16 years old. We were all that age and 99% of use did not grow up in a bubble.  It's time we all try to make a difference for the better anyway we can rather sit and say bad things about people, not just the boys.

Screw you pal If a rail was there they wouldnt of drowned just because you were at a party doesnt mean you deserve death. Sean and Robert were my friends i knew them since middle school they werent bad people and they didnt deserve what happened to them. If it was your child youd be outraged as well. Have some compassion!
