The family of a Florida woman who was killed after a car hit her on her way to Yom Kippur evening services two years ago filed two lawsuits against the driver and his company.

Orly Ohayon, whose mother, Esther Ohayon, was struck on Sept. 13, 2013, while crossing a street in a Jacksonville suburb, filed an auto negligence lawsuit last week, and her sister filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the driver, local news site Jacksonville.com reported Monday.

Orly Ohayon, then 16, was with her mother at the time of the accident and was injured. Esther Ohayon, 57, died at the scene.

The two had been walking to the Etz Haim Synagogue in Mandarin for Kol Nidre services.
