The brother of a 93-year-old Salina man who was killed when a car struck his four-wheel mobility scooter last year has filed a wrongful death suit against the driver.

The Salina Journal reports Leon E. Olson filed the suit last week claiming Dennis Campbell was negligent when he crashed into Eugene Olson's scooter Sept. 9.

Campbell's car struck the scooter from behind at an intersection. Salina police say that because there were no sidewalks in that block, scooters are permitted to be driven on the street.

Eugene Olson died at a local hospital two days after the crash.

Campbell has not been charged in the accident, which remains under investigation.

The lawsuit in Saline County District Court is seeking more than $75,000 in damages.
