A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed against Shannon Hill, 18, of Elgin, who is accused of being high on marijuana when he caused a crash in September 2012 that killed a passenger, Lawrence Echols. Also named in the lawsuit are Hill's guardian, Mattie Grant, and 2 J's Wine and Liquor, an Elgin store. The suit argues that: Hill is liable for wrongful death; Grant was negligent in letting him drive her vehicle; and Hill somehow got alcohol from the store.
