    Victims and family of victims of a fatal crash on Beardsley Avenue in Elkhart now suing the city.

    They claim the sidewalk is unsafe and the city was careless in maintaining it.

    Three people -- including a baby -- were killed and two others were injured when a driver jumped the curb and hit them in August 2017.

    The suit alleges the city knew there was a reoccurring problem at the intersection prior to the accident.

    It says the city failed to protect pedestrians and failed to install proper warning signs for drivers.
