A Prince Edward Island man whose wife was killed in a motorcycle crash is suing the drunk driver who caused it.

Stacy Cheverie was killed, and Bernard Cheverie was seriously injured, when their motorcycle was hit by 73-year-old Raymond Alfred Cantelo in October 2011. Cantelo is serving five years in prison for impaired driving causing death.

Lawyers for Bernard Cheverie and family filed civil suits in P.E.I. Supreme Court last week seeking an unspecified amount for pain and suffering.

Cheverie is still recovering from his injuries.

No statement of defence has been filed.
