DAYTON, Ohio — An Ohio college student who was run over by a fire truck while riding a bicycle is suing the city of Dayton.

The Dayton Daily News reports that Quinton Kane suffered serious injuries in the collision two years ago. The University of Dayton student was riding in a bike lane when the fire truck making a non-emergency run didn't yield and struck him while turning into a parking lot.

Dayton fire officials said at the time that there were three firefighters and one fire lieutenant aboard the emergency vehicle.

The lawsuit filed this month seeks at least $25,000.

A message seeking comment on the lawsuit was left Monday for a city spokeswoman.
