PHOENIX (AP) — The mother of a woman killed in a crash involving a Phoenix Fire Department truck has filed a $25 million wrongful death claim against the city.

The claim alleges negligence by the firefighters operating the truck and their supervisors.

Killed in the April 7 crash was 19-year-old Dariana Serrano, her 20-year-old boyfriend Kenneth Collins and the couple's 3-month-old son.

Phoenix Fire Engine 18 was headed to an emergency call when it collided with a pickup truck carrying the family.

The claim was filed last month by a lawyer representing Serrano's mother and is a precursor to a lawsuit.

Police have said the fire engine was running its sirens and lights and the pickup made a left turn in front of the oncoming fire truck at a west Phoenix intersection.
