The family of a Hillsboro, OR, couple killed in a crash in Astoria, OR, is now suing their car maker and several repair shops.

The lawsuit seeks $50 million in wrongful death restitution. The estates of Wenyi Chen and Yuzhi Fei say the couple’s Honda CRV accelerated by itself---causing it to crash through the railing on pier 39 and plunge into the Columbia River in 2020.


The lawsuit claims the car had accelerated on its own three times before that. The suit states it was taken to Hillsboro Honda twice and Beaverton Honda once for repairs.
