HUNTINGTON – A Huntington man alleges he was injured when the police vehicle he was in was involved in a collision.

Dana Young filed a complaint in Cabell Circuit Court against Sean Beckett and the City of Milton alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 2, 2016, he was a passenger in a Milton police cruiser driven by Beckett when Beckett carelessly switched lanes and struck another vehicle on U.S. Route 60 in Milton.
