Six months after a small plane crashed into an East Palo Alto neighborhood killing the three Tesla Motors workers onboard, the family of one the victims is filing suit.

The lawsuit accuses the pilot, 56-year-old Douglas Bourn and the company that owned the Cessna 310 plane of negligence. Bourn was also killed in the crash.

According to the suit, Bourn and the company, Air Unique Inc., showed blatant disregard for his lack of recent flying experience, poor weather and the conditon of his aircraft. The suit does not specify monetary damages.

The suit was filed by the family of the youngest victim, 31-year-old Andrew Ingram.

The crash on Feb. 17 killed Bourn, Ingram and Brian Finn, a senior interactive electronics manager from East Palo Alto.
