Firefighter Suing SFFD Over Asiana Aftermath
Posted May 9th, 2014 @ 5:13pm by KFBK News

A San Francisco firefighter accused of accidentally running over a passenger thrown from the wreckage of an Asiana Airlines flight that crashed at SFO is suing the San Francisco Fire Department.

Elyse Duckett alleges that she is being made a scapegoat for larger failures in the rescue effort following the July 6 crash.

The suit says another rescue vehicle struck 16-year-old Ye Meng Yuan before Duckett's, but only Duckett's name was released as someone responsible for running over the girl.

Duckett, a 24-year veteran of the force, seeks unspecified damages.
