Family of dead teen files claim against Sheboygan

Posted: Updated:
SHEBOYGAN (AP) -- The family of a Sheboygan teen struck and killed by a city truck in 2011 has filed a legal claim against the city for $250,000.
A Sheboygan Press Media report says the notice of claim is a precursor to a lawsuit. It's scheduled to be introduced at Monday's Common Council meeting.
The family alleges the city was negligent in the death of 18-year-old Jaime Olivas. He was crossing the street outside a crosswalk when he was struck by a Department of Public Works truck driven by a city employee.
The family says the city was negligent in mounting a leaf-collection system to the truck in a manner that obstructed the driver's vision.
A call to the Sheboygan city attorney Sunday afternoon rang unanswered and disconnected without taking a message.
