Dassel's Petroleum Sued for Propane Tank Explosion that kills man

Found this on the Fresno Superior Court web site.

Maybe it’s time to create a “DasselsBlows.com” site ūüėČ

I’ve included relevant sections below:

On May 11, 2007 an explosion occurred at Harris
Farms, Inc. located at 21960 S. Fresno-Coalinga Highway
in Coalinga.  The  explosion caused the death of
Alfonso Quevedo
.  It also caused substantial
damage
to adjacent property owned by Harris-Woolf
California Almonds.    The  explosion  was
allegedly caused by the leaking of a propane tank
just after re-fueling.

On January 9, 2009 Nationwide Agribusiness Insurance
Company, the insurer for Harris Farms filed a complaint
in  subrogation  against  Dassel’s Petroleum, Inc. as Case
No. 09 CECG 00071.  The insurer is seeking to recover
the sum of $2,165,874.62, representing the amount it
paid to its insured for damages incurred to the real and
personal property caused by the explosion. This case is
set for trial on June 14, 2010.  On April 29, 2009 the heirs
of Alfonso Quevedo filed a complaint against Harris Fresh,
Inc., Harris Farms, Inc. and Dassel’s Petroleum, Inc. as Case
No. 09 CECG 01486.  That complaint alleges causes of
action for negligence against both Harris  Farms  and
Dassel’s,
premises liability against Harris Farms alone and
‚Äúsurvivorship‚ÄĚ against both Harris Farms and Dassel‚Äôs.
A trial date has not been set in that case.
