A Dormont couple has filed a lawsuit in Allegheny County naming Scott Township and Allegheny County as co-defendants responsible for a car accident.

Cheryl and Robert Keefer claim in the lawsuit filed Dec. 3 that Scott and Allegheny County knew about the unsafe conditions on Vanadium Road in Scott, but did nothing to make it safer or warn motorists of the danger.

Cheryl Keefer was injured on Dec. 24, 2010 when motorist Mary Seelnacht of Allison Park caused Keefer's car swerve off the road and strike a telephone pole. Keefer sustained head, neck and back injuries. The Keefers are seeking an undisclosed amount of money.
