The family of a 39-year-old scientist at the University of Washington has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the driver of the vehicle that struck and killed him on February 4, 2009, reports the Ballard News-Tribune.

Kevin Black was struck by a Ford E250 van as he was bicycling to work. The driver attempted a U-turn on a street unable to accommodate it and drove into the bike lane, hitting Black. Black was taken to Harborview Medical Center where he later died.

Black, an avid cyclist, was a molecular researcher at the University. He leaves behind two daughters, ages 13 and 10.
