She has sued Eliot and Kristine Baggs, owners of the SUV identified on the state patrol crash report as allegedly involved in the crash. The lawsuit seeks medical and burial costs, and other damages in excess of $25,000.
The Springfield News-Sun called the Baggs’ home and were told by a man who answered that they were unavailable for comment.
Jordyn Mason declined to comment and her attorney, Kenneth Ignozzi, didn’t return a call seeking comment.
Mason was hit outside of his sister Christina Cole’s home on Tecumseh Road. He was helping her move in. Cole said she and the entire family haven’t been the same since he died.

“How could you do that to somebody … Our family has struggled with this for a year now. Not knowing who did it, somebody knows,” Elam said.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol Springfield Post was investigating the death, but it since has been turned over to the Ohio Attorney General’s Office.
The family hopes the state office will take action soon.
“Somebody needs to be charged … There’s crashes out here that happen every day and their cases are already being charged, they are already serving their time,” Elam said. “Where this one, it’s a year later and we are still left in the open not knowing who killed my cousin.”
