RENO (AP) — A 70-year-old California man who lost an eye after a racing plane crashed into spectators in Reno has filed a personal injury lawsuit.

Attorney David Casey in San Diego said Wednesday the civil negligence case filed Monday in Washoe County District Court names the pilot’s family, a mechanic on the aircraft and the organization that hosts the National Championship Air Races.

It seeks unspecified damages for injuries suffered by Gerry de Treville of Ukiah, Calif.

The lawsuit was first reported by KTVN-TV in Reno.

It is similar to one filed Oct. 31 in Texas by the family of a man killed in the Sept. 16 crash of pilot Jimmy Leeward’s World War II-era P-51 Mustang at Reno-Stead Airport.

Eleven people died, including Leeward. At least 74 were hurt.
