WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - A father has filed a lawsuit against the driver who fatally struck his daughter while allegedly driving under the influence last week. 

Bethany Aillen Callista Leggio (Bethany Ziad), 18, was killed late on May 14 near 55th Street South and Hoover, near Haysville. Witnesses said the driver of a red Ford Escape was driving without headlights at the time of the incident.

Lt. Nathan Gibbs with the Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office said a group had gathered in the area to create a memorial for 16-year-old Remone Halabi, who was killed in a motorcycle crash there the weekend prior. Bethany had just arrived and was walking northbound across 55th Street when she was hit.

The driver, Trisha Greer of Derby, was booked for driving under the influence and later released.

No criminal charges have been filed as of Monday morning. The sheriff's office said the case will be presented to the district attorney's office, but reports are still being compiled. 

The Derby Police Department said Greer worked for the city from 2016 to 2021. 

"The May 14 incident occurred in Sedgwick County, and the investigation is being led by the Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office," Derby PD said on Facebook. "The Derby Police Department has no involvement."
 

The wrongful death suit filed by Attorney Tony Atterbury with Bull Attorneys is seeking in excess of $75,000 in damages. 

"As direct and proximate result of the wrongful death of Bethany Aileen Callista Leggio, deceased, as heretofore described, his heirs as law suffered and sustained, and will continue to suffer and sustain, economic and noneconomic damages in an amount in excess of Seventy-Five Thousand Dollars ($75,000.00) including, without limitation, past and future filial support, income benefits, loss of services, mental anguish, suffering and bereavement, loss of society, companionship, guidance, advice and counsel, comfort and protection, and funeral and burial expenses," the lawsuit states.
