Lawsuit Filed By Co-Pilot of Flight 5191

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The lone survivor of a plane crash in Lexington that killed 49 people after taking off from the wrong runway has sued the company that designed the runway and taxiway lights at Blue Grass Airport.

James Polehinke filed suit in Fayette Circuit Court against AVCON Incorporated on Friday, three days before the one-year anniversary of the crash.

The lawsuit says AVCON Incorporated was responsible for runway lighting at the airport that was erratic, haphazard and-or improper.

Calls today by The Associated Press to AVCON and Polehinke's lawyer, Bruce Brandon, were not immediately returned.
