Cases in death of Nicole Miller set for trial

Posted: Updated:

CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) -- Three lawsuits stemming from a fatal accident at the All-Good Music Festival near Masontown last summer will be tried together in Clarksburg.

U.S. District Judge Irene Keeley is combining lawsuits by survivors Elizabeth Rose Doran and Yen Ton with one filed by the father of their friend, Nicole Miller. All are from Mount Pleasant, S.C.

20-year-old Nicole Miller died in July in West Virginia where she was attending the All Good  music festival. A pickup truck slid down a steep grassy slope, hitting two other vehicles before plowing into the tent where the women were sleeping.

Two of Miller's friends, Doran and Yen, were injured as well. Multiple lawsuits have been filed by the victims against the driver, Clay Lewin of Cape Charles, Va.

The lawsuits target a dozen parties, including Lewin, Maryland-based Walther Productions and the operator of Marvin's Mountaintop LLC.

Several promoters and security and parking companies are also named.

Keeley has tentatively set trial for Aug. 19.
