Cavenaugh Sues Over Chopper Crash
July 27, 2009 at 4:32 AM (PT)
Longtime SOUTH FLORIDA traffic reporter PAUL CAVENAUGH is suing the helicopter company that owned the chopper that crashed and caused him to sustain injuries to his lower back. The PALM BEACH POST reports that CAVENAUGH (aka PAUL KASPRZYK) has sued AIR COASTAL HELICOPTERS for his injuries, claiming that the crash was caused by poor maintenance (the NTSB pegged the cause of the NOVEMBER 11, 2008 crash as a loose nut).
The crash came as CAVENAUGH's contract to provide traffic reports for JAMES CRYSTAL RADIO Talk WFTL-A/WEST PALM BEACH-FORT LAUDERDALE and CBS affiliate WPEC-TV (CBS 12)/WEST PALM BEACH were ending due to budget considerations.
