BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW ) A lawsuit was filed this week as a result of a deadly crash outside of an Amherst restaurant.

The family of the husband and wife, who tragically lost their lives in front of their 12 year old son in 2011, is now suing the property owner, and the driver of the vehicle.

Joseph and Kathryn Bennett died when a car jumped a curb and crashed through the restaurant window.

The owners of the restaurant told Eyewitness News they had no comment on the pending litigation.

Attorney Barry Covert talked with Channel 7's Eyewitness News on the importance of the case, and the legal process that could unfold.
