City of Sheboygan sued for 2011 fatal accident

The city of Sheboygan faces charges because a leaf collection truck killed a teenager who was on his way to school in 2011, reported on June 2.

In the complaint filed by the family of Jaime Olivas, 18, it was claimed that the leaf collection machine installed on the city’s utility truck blocked the operator’s sight. Olivas’ family also claimed that Sheboygan was negligent in installing slower speed limits near the school that might have prevented the accident that killed their son in November 2011. Investigations revealed that neither the teenager nor the truck operator saw one another when the accident occurred. Olivas’ family is pursuing $250,000 worth of damages from the fatal crash.
