Families of four Marines who died in an Osprey helicopter crash in California are suing Boeing, Rolls-Royce and Bell Textron. They’re the makers of the military aircraft.

The lawsuit accuses the companies of negligence and says they failed to make “truthful statements to the government and to service members about the design, operation, and safety of V-22 Osprey aircraft.”

Amber Sax, whose husband Captain John Sax died in the crash, said in a statement that she wanted to file the complaint to get answers for others at risk. 

The lawyer representing the families said in a news release that despite the companies saying their aircraft are safe, “the facts keep telling a different story.”
