SOUTH WHITEHALL TWP., Pa. -

Dorney Park is being sued over a car accident that killed one of the park's workers.

Zhen Li was a Chinese citizen working at Dorney last summer.

She was walking across an on-ramp to Interstate 78 when a car hit and killed her.

Now Li's family is suing the driver and Dorney Park.

The suit claims the park did not provide Chinese workers adequate transportation between the theme park and where they were staying.

The driver was never criminally charged in the case.

Dorney Park had no comment on the lawsuit.
