Suit claims wrongful death in Ohio police crash

CINCINNATI (AP) — The wife of a Cincinnati cab driver killed in a crash at the end of a high-speed police chase is suing the city.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Mohamed Ould Mohamed Sidi's wife and estate filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the city of Cincinnati, some of its employees and the convicted felon who crashed into his cab. Sidi and a passenger were killed in the March 2011 crash.

Sidi was driving Tonya Hairston to the Cincinnati Amtrak station when a man in a stolen car fleeing police ran a downtown red light and hit the cab.

The suit claims the suspect and three police officers were negligent and caused Sidi's death.

Cincinnati Solicitor John Curp said the city is not responsible for the criminal acts of others.
