TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The family of a DPS officer killed in an accident is suing the Yuma man who officials said is responsible for the officer's death.

Tim Huffman died in his patrol car near Yuma when a semi-truck crashed into him.

DPS officers said Jorge Espinoza was behind the wheel of that truck.

It was announced Thursday that Huffman's twin brother and father are filing a lawsuit against Espinoza.

They believe Espinoza was looking down at his cell phone, when his semi plowed into Huffman's car, which was pulled over.

Police have said cell phone records show the driver was looking at photos of scantily-clad women on his phone.

Espinoza is facing charges of manslaughter and endangerment.
