MEMPHIS, TN -
(WMC-TV) - A complaint was filed in state circuit court Monday morning by the survivors of a deadly wreck involving a Memphis police car.
On August 26, 2012, Senatobia, Mississippi 7th grader MacKayla Ross and her mother, Deloise Epps, died after the car they were riding in was hit by a Memphis police cruiser that allegedly ran a red light while speeding without blaring lights and sirens.
Michael Ross, MacKayla's father, suffered permanent injuries that have thus far racked up about $1 million dollars in medical expenses, according to the family's attorney, Thomas Greer.
"And who's left to pay for it? Mr. Ross? The taxpayers? It's just an unfair system," said Greer.
Ross lost his daughter and fiance and spent 4-months in the hospital.
"It's still tough on me but I'm dealing with it," said Ross.
The family's lawsuit against the city does not specify a dollar amount but seeks medical expenses for Ross and the value of his little girl's life.
"We're gonna try to maximize everything we can for this family," said Greer.
By law, the city is only liable for $300,000 in damages, though the family claims it has been offered nothing.
"It's been reported in the media that the city has accepted responsibility and they're willing to pay," Greer said. "Our clients have never been contacted by anybody at the city. No one's come to them and apologized. No one's offered them any assistance at this point. The message from the city was file your lawsuit and then we'll see what happens."
Last week, the Memphis police officer involved in the wreck, Alex Beard, was fired from the force after administrative charges against him were upheld. Police say the district attorney's office is still investigating and could file criminal charges.
The folks at City Hall declined to comment on the lawsuit.
