The driver of a vehicle that struck a fire truck parked at the scene of a rollover crash on I-94 earlier this year is suing the fire department and the apparatus’ driver claiming “Neither the lights nor sirens of the fire truck were activated” at the time of the accident.
Charles Horn and Amanda Holloway filed suit last week in Washtenaw County Trial Court against the Ypsilanti Fire Department and an unnamed firefighter. Horn and his daughter were critically injured in the crash, while his daughter’s friend, Christina Snyder, 15, was killed. The accident occurred n May 29, 2017.
Michigan Live is reporting that Horn has a lengthy driving record and served time for armed robbery. The lawsuit alleges “(Horn) struck the fire truck as a result of the negligent and unlawful failure to activate the fire truck’s lights and sirens.”
