(CHICAGO) United Parcel Service is being sued by the relative of an elderly woman killed when she was struck by a truck, on Chicago’s northwest side.
Just before 5 p.m. on August 22nd, Maya Medovaya was crossing Peterson Avenue at Central Park when she was struck by a UPS truck as it turned right onto Central Park. The 78-year old woman died, at a hospital, 20 minutes later.
Medovaya’s daughter is suing the company, seeking more than $50,000 in damages.
The suit also lists the driver as a defendant. 64-year-old Jackie Clay was ticketed for failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
UPS says they are sad for the family’s loss and it’s aware of the lawsuit but won’t comment on active litigation.
