Yukon Driver Files Lawsuit Over Fire Apparatus Accident

A driver is suing a Whitehorse firefighter and the city over a collision between her vehicle and fire truck that left her with serious injuries, reports Yukon News.

In a statement of claim filed to the Yukon Supreme Court Nov. 29, Lisa Gallant-McRobb alleges that negligence on the part of the firefighter driving the truck, Torey Wiebe, caused the crash.

She also alleges that the City of Whitehorse, as Wiebe’s employer, is vicariously liable for the incident. The claims have not been tested in court.
