STANFORD, Kentucky — The daughter of a man who was fatally hit by a Stanford police cruiser last year has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the officer, the police chief, the mayor and the city of Stanford.

The Advocate-Messenger (http://bit.ly/23gDS4Y ) reports the lawsuit was filed this month in Lincoln Circuit Court by Tiffany Blanton. Her 69-year-old father, Howard Robbins, died after he was struck by a police cruiser on Jan. 15, 2015.

The lawsuit says Officer Travis Richardson, who was employed by Stanford and off-duty at the time of the incident, had no reason to be going between 80 and 90 mph when he hit Robbins.

Richardson wasn't charged, but Mayor Eddie Carter terminated his employment following a disciplinary hearing in September.

City Attorney Christopher Reed declined to comment on the lawsuit.
