Taxi driver's son suing accused gunman held in Los Angeles in fatal Las Vegas shooting, crash

The son of a taxi driver killed in a fiery crash following a vehicle-to-vehicle shooting on the Las Vegas Strip has filed a negligence lawsuit against the man being held in Los Angeles as a fugitive on Nevada homicide charges.

A civil negligence lawsuit filed in Nevada state court seeks at least $20,000 in damages from Ammar Harris on behalf of cab driver Michael Boldon's 37-year-old son, Michael A. Boldon, and his estate.

Attorney Lawrence Smith said Thursday he's trying to get answers about the Feb. 21 crash — including why the taxi exploded in flames and whether Boldon and passenger Sandra Sutton-Wasmund could have survived if there had been no fire.

Harris was arrested Feb. 28 in Los Angeles and has an extradition hearing March 14.
