The families of two car-accident victims allege in a suit filed yesterday in Gloucester County Superior Court that the two drivers involved were negligent and that a convenience store also was responsible because high shrubbery made it difficult to see traffic. Three people died Nov. 30 when a car driven by Margaret J. Trancucci of Staten Island, N.Y., went through an intersection in Washington Township after a stop sign apparently had been stolen, police said. A dump truck hit the car as it attempted to turn onto Pitman-Downer Road from Mariner Drive, killing Trancucci, 72; her daughter, Barbara Civalier, 28, of Deptford, and Trancucci's sister, Genevieve Dianora, 68, also of Deptford.
