The civil complaint filed on behalf of the family, states global positioning satellite data shows two trucks with J.B. Hunt Transport Inc. were on South St. Marys Street at the same time the hit and run occurred. The complaint states one truck successfully navigated around Lecker by moving to the left and continued northbound. Approximately 20 seconds later another J.B. Hunt truck hauling a trailer struck Lecker. The complaint states the truck did not make any attempt to evade prior to striking him and did not use its brakes in an attempt to slow down or avoid him.
