Widow sues Mexican billionaire over fatal racecar crash
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The widow of an auto racing instructor is suing a Mexican billionaire and his teenage son over the man’s death last month in a training crash.
The Palm Beach Post reports the wife of Peter London is suing Carlos Peralta Quintero and his 18-year-old son Nicolás Peralta Quintero for the April 16 crash at Palm Beach International Raceway. The lawsuit says London was teaching the younger Peralta in the young man’s 2013 Lamborghini Avendator when it crashed into a concrete barrier. London died, while Nicolás Peralta suffered non-life threatening injuries. Authorities have not released many details about the crash.
The elder Peralta is CEO of Grupo IUSA, a Mexico City-based conglomerate that owns manufacturing, automotive, publishing and telecommunications companies.
The newspaper said Grupo IUSA did not respond to numerous requests for comment.
