The victim’s wife, his legal representative, contended that the pickup truck driver acted out of negligence when he sped down Springy Banks Road and crashed into her husband. The plaintiff also alleged that the Town of East Hampton was negligent in the placement of the mid-block crosswalk involved in the crash and that it was not placed nor signed in conformance with the controlling Manual for Uniform Traffic Control Devices.
