CHICAGO — The family of a man who died of injuries sustained during a police chase is suing more than a dozen Chicago police officers and the city of Chicago, alleging insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries and negligence.
Fonzell Horton, as independent administrator of the estate of Keshawn Horton, filed a complaint on June 13 in Cook County Circuit Court against the defendants, alleging they chased the vehicle in which the Keshawn Horton was a passenger, leading to his injuries and death.
The complaint alleges the officers failed to consider the risk of being involved in a high-speed pursuit.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount that exceeds the jurisdictional limits of this court. He is represented by Michael D. Robbins of Michael D. Robbins & Associates in Chicago.
