Family of OSU Student Hit By Dump Truck Files Lawsuits

The family of Daniel Hughes, the Ohio State freshman who was hit by a dump truck on campus September 5, has filed negligence lawsuits against the university and several contractors.

Hughes, 18, lost his right leg and suffered severe damage to his pelvis and spine as a result of the accident. His parents and three siblings are suing Ohio State; the driver of the dump truck, 71-year-old Isaac Hinton of the East Side; and 10 contractors hired by OSU, saying they failed to take the necessary precautions to keep students safe in what they knew was a densely packed area, according to the lawsuits filed by attorneys Steve Crandall and Marc Pera.

Hughes told police that he had been walking his bike on the sidewalk when he saw the dump truck traveling next to him. Without warning, he said, the truck made a sharp right turn into the construction area. Hughes said he yelled at the driver to stop, but the truck ran him over.

The lawsuits say Ohio State and the construction contractors failed to provide flaggers, security officers or to take other precautions to protect pedestrians and bicyclists. Read more here:
