Lawsuit Filed After Postal Truck Accident in WI

The spouse of a woman who was recently killed in a trucking accident has filed a lawsuit against the U.S. government for his loss.

The man, who lives in Wisconsin, lost his wife in an accident involving a postal truck and he blames the government and the driver of the truck for his recklessness.

Woman Struck by Truck

Genevieve Slayton, 76, was driving with her husband, Lyndahl Slayton, when Lyndahl pulled ahead of the mail truck and stopped.

Genevieve reportedly stepped out of the car and was immediately hit by the postal truck, which was being driven by Arthur Camm.

According to reports, Slayton was knocked to the ground by the truck and hit her head on the curb.

Mourning Husband Files Suit

The lawsuit filed by Lyndahl claims that Camm was negligent in operating the vehicle and he was reckless for not yielding at the right of way to the pedestrian.

Following the accident, Camm was cited for inattentive driving and pleaded no contest to the charges brought against him.

The suit is seeking unspecified damages for medical and funeral expenses, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship.
