While chasing a tornado in March 2017, The Weather Channel’s storm chasers, Kelley Gene Williamson and Randall Yarnall, crashed their Chevrolet Suburban into another driver, killing him and themselves. Photo courtesy of The Law Offices of Robert Ball.

The two storm chasers were driving 70 mph, racing after a tornado and live-streaming video for The Weather Channel, when they ran a stop sign and crashed into a Jeep, killing its driver and themselves, according to a new lawsuit.

Alleging in a $125 million wrongful death lawsuit that The Weather Channel knew its storm chasers were reckless, dangerous drivers and did nothing about it, the estate of the deceased victim, Corbin Jaeger, and his mother, Karen Di Piazza, are now suing the TV station and 15 affiliates, as well as the estates of the two deceased storm chasers, Kelley Gene Williamson and Randall Yarnall.
