16-year-old Hannah Boemker was struck and killed by an ambulance that was en route to an accident on May 1, 2006. The teen, who was driving a Honda Civic, apparently did not notice the lights and sirens of the emergency vehicle. Although it has been claimed that headphones may have limited Boemker’s hearing ability and contributed to the crash, that allegation was not substantiated by investigators. The lawsuit was filed by Boemker’s parents. A dollar amount of damages sought has not yet been named in the case.
