City Tried to Bill Dead Man for Damage to Police Car That Struck and Killed Him

Late last month, Laverne Dobbinson received a letter, addressed to her son, from a law firm notifying him that it had been retained by the City of New York to collect money for damages to a police car.

If the letter, which demanded that he pay $710 within 10 days, was pro forma, the circumstances surrounding how the damage occurred were most certainly not.

The police car was damaged after a chase that ended when it collided with Ms. Dobbinson’s son, Tamon Robinson, denting the front of the car and killing him.
