OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — On Tuesday, Omaha City Council will be vote on a settlement of nearly $50,000 for the driver who was struck by a city ambulance, being driven by an Omaha firefighter.
Anthony Magett filed a lawsuit against the City of Omaha and firefighter David Roshone.
According to the complaint, in April of 2019, Roshone was driving an ambulance when he drove through a stop sign, hitting Magett’s vehicle.
Roshone says he was transporting a patient to the hospital at the time. He says he did stop at the stop sign but thought he was clear before turning.
Magett suffered injuries, leading to over $17,000 in hospital bills.
Tuesday the City Council will be voting on a $49,000 settlement.
The Omaha Fire Department told 3NewsNow Roshone is still employed with them.
