HOUSTON A Houston family hit by tragedy is suing automaker Chrysler.

Last summer, Josh Berry, 41, and Robin Berry, 40, were killed when a car veered into oncoming traffic on Highway 285 in Fort Stockton and struck their minivan head-on. The family was on their way home from a vacation in Colorado.

The driver of the car, 31-year-old Michael Doyle of Phoenix, was hospitalized in critical condition and his passenger, 28-year-old Colleen Doyle, was killed in the crash.

The Berry family, who lived in the Briargrove area, was well-known in the community. Josh Berry unsuccessfully ran for Houston City Council in 2003. Robin Berry was a party planner.

Their three children, 9-year-old Peter, 8-year-old Aaron and 6-year-old Willa, were seriously injured.

Relatives have filed a lawsuit saying design flaws in the family s minivan contributed to their injuries.

The family is also suing the driver of the other vehicle in the crash.
