Ohio Tanker Crash Victim’s Wife Seeks $12 Million in Damages

June 3, 2008

An Ohio woman whose husband was killed in a crash with a tanker truck in 2006 is seeking $12 million in damages.

Cynthia Heider of Cridersville has sued the Ohio Department of Transportation in the Ohio Court of Claims in the death of her husband, 44-year-old Dr. Matthew J. Heider. He was an anesthesiologist at St. Rita’s Mercy Medical Center and Lima Memorial Hospital.

Heider says the traffic light at the intersection where the accident occurred was defective.

Neither ODOT nor the Ohio attorney general’s office had immediate comment on the lawsuit Sunday.
