LOGAN – A Man resident alleges she was injured when a hubcap flew off of a fire engine and went through the windshield of her vehicle.
Misty L. Collins filed a complaint in Logan Circuit Court against the town of Man and the town of Man Fire Department alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 13, 2016, she was traveling on Buffalo Creek Road in Kistler when the defendants' fire engine passed by in the opposite direction. The suit states a hubcap flew off of the fire engine when it ran off/hit a pothole in the pavement and the hubcap went through the windshield of her vehicle. She alleges the incident caused her injuries to the neck, right shoulder and arm, and right knee.
The plaintiff holds the town of Man and the town of Man Fire Department responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to properly inspect the condition of the fire engine and maintain it in a safe condition.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an amount to fully compensate her for her personal injuries, pain, inconvenience, applicable costs and interest. She is represented by J. Timothy DiPiero of DiTrapano, Barrett, DiPiero, McGinley & Simmons PLLC in Charleston.
