    The son of a taxi driver killed in a fiery crash following a vehicle-to-vehicle shooting on the Las Vegas Strip has filed a negligence lawsuit against the man being held in Los Angeles as a fugitive on Nevada homicide charges.

    A civil negligence lawsuit filed in Nevada state court seeks at least $20,000 in damages from Ammar Harris on behalf of cab driver Michael Boldon's 37-year-old son son, Michael A. Boldon, and his estate.

    Attorney Lawrence Smith said he's trying to get answers about the Feb. 21 crash — including why the taxi exploded in flames and whether Boldon and passenger Sandra Sutton-Wasmund could have survived if there had been no fire.

    Harris was arrested Feb. 28 in Los Angeles and faces an extradition hearing on April 12.
