The two Berthoud High School students who lost both their legs in a two-vehicle crash earlier this year have filed a lawsuit against the maker of the vehicle they had been riding in.

Tyler Carron and Nikko Landeros filed the lawsuit Monday in Denver District Court.

It alleges that the rear doors of Carron's Isuzu Trooper obscured safety lights when they opened the doors to get a spare tire and jack out of the back.

Carron and Landeros lost their legs after another vehicle came up from the rear and hit them while they were behind the SUV on January 15th.

The attorney for the teens says the Trooper's design violates a federal law requiring safety lights to be visible.

Isuzu officials declined comment on the suit.
