Connecticut family sues over fatal Seattle pedicab crash

A Connecticut family is suing a Washington pedicab company, saying faulty brakes were to blame for their father's death in a Seattle crash last year.

A Connecticut family is suing a Washington pedicab company, saying faulty brakes were to blame for their father's death in a Seattle crash last year.

Peter Dzioba, a 60-year-old father of four from New Britain, Conn., was killed when the pedicab he and his wife were riding in could not stop at a red light in August 2008. The three-wheeled vehicle was coming down a hill in the Belltown neighborhood when it collided with a scooter and veered into the path of a minivan.

The lawsuit, filed in King County Superior Court on Monday, names Bellingham-based Cascadia Cabs as well as Ningbo Nanyang Corp., the Chinese company that manufactured the cab.

Cascadia Cabs did not immediately return a message seeking comment. Last year, its owner said the brakes were working properly and the driver should never have taken the pedicab down a steep hill.
