6:55 AM EST, November 14, 2007

WATERBURY, Conn.

One of the Waterbury firefighters injured in a crash that killed another firefighter in May has filed notice he's suing the city for negligence.

An attorney for William Mahony, a driver of one of two trucks involved in the May 19th crash that claimed the life of Capt. John Keane, is alleging negligence.

The accident occurred at the intersection of East Aurora Street and Route 73 while firefighters were responding to a kitchen fire.

Mahony's attorney alleges negligence on the part of Keane and Joseph Fischetti, the driver of the other truck in the accident.

The police investigation into the accident concluded that Fischetti ran the red light at the intersection and was speeding.
