INDIANAPOLIS - An Indiana woman has filed a claim with Indianapolis after she said a work truck sprayed her vehicle with yellow road paint.
Donna Hovey said she was driving down Meridian Street near 14th at roughly 9 a.m. Tuesday when a truck painting yellow lines on the road started coming toward her.
Hovey said she didn't have time to move her car, so two of her tires and part of her car were hit by the paint.
"I've actually talked to the body shop," Hovey said. "And they've indicated that typically, when this kind of paint gets on a car, the car has to be re-painted. And I've only owned my car for about five months."
Hovey said she was able to get some of the paint off her car using a special solvent, but she filed a tort claim with the Mayor's Action Center.
The Department of Public Works said it will review her case to decide if the city is liable for the car's damage.
