WHEELING – A man is suing the city of Wheeling after being injured when his car was struck by a street sweeper.
According to the filing in Ohio Circuit Court, Adam Morse alleges negligence and liability against the city of Wheeling.
On Nov. 3, 2017, a street sweeper operated by city employee Norman Davis collided into Morse's Hyundai sedan on Main Street in Wheeling, the suit states.
In his suit, Morse claims the city of Wheeling was negligent, reckless and careless due to Davis' operation of the street sweeper and his failure to yield the right of way and to stay in the proper lane. The plaintiff also alleges Davis was following too closely and driving at an unsafe speed.
