Crash leads to lawsuit against city, officer

A lawsuit has been filed following an August 2016 crash involving a Minden police officer.

Lawyers for Terunia Brantley, of Springhill, filed a lawsuit last month in district court against the City of Minden, officer Jeremy Sitter and Travelers Indemnity Company.

The lawsuit alleges that Sitter was negligent in the Aug. 21 crash on Sheppard Street that reportedly left Brantley injured.

Lawyers for Brantley allege Sitter, while responding to a call, failed to stop at a stop sign on Spann Street, crashing into Brantley, who was traveling along Sheppard Street.

The lawsuit seeks at least $50,000 in damages.

Court dates are pending and Judge Mike Nerren has been assigned to the case. Attorney J. Marshall Rice of Rice and Kendig represents Brantley.

The City of Minden, Sitter or the insurance has yet to file a response to the lawsuit.
