John F. Bachini and his wife Joan ave filed action in Hill County District Court against Gregory Wade  Lander  seeking  an undisclosed amount of compensation or the May 20 death of their son, Steven John Bachini.

  Bachini, 19, was a passenger in a vehicle driven by Lander that, ac­cording to reports filed in district court, left Beaver Creek road and swerved across the highway into a borrow pit, rolling about five times.

  The report also states that Lander was traveling at an excessive rate of speed and that he was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident.

  Lander  was  charged  with negligent homicide July 31. He pleaded not guilty to the charge. If

convicted, Lander faces up to 10 years in prison, a $50,000 fine or both. A trial date has not been set.
