Bicyclist who was run over by firetruck sues Ohio city
DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio college student who was struck and run over by a firetruck while riding a bicycle is suing the city of Dayton.
The Dayton Daily News reports that then-18-year-old Quinton Kane suffered serious injuries in the collision two years ago. He was riding in a bike lane when the firetruck making a non-emergency run didn’t yield and struck him while turning into a parking lot.
Dayton fire officials said at the time that there were three firefighters and one fire lieutenant aboard the emergency vehicle when the collision occurred.
The lawsuit filed this month by the University of Dayton student seeks at least $25,000.
A message seeking comment on the lawsuit was left Monday for a city spokeswoman.
