(OMAHA, Neb.) - Joseph Benak was driving his 1989 Mazda pickup truck Dec. 3, 1999, through the intersection of 42nd and Grover Streets when another vehicle ran a red light and struck his truck.

Benak is now suing the City of Omaha for thousands of dollars, alleging the other vehicle ran the red light because the driver was being pursued by police cruisers and saying the city should be held liable.
