Men Sue Ohio Woman Rescued from Car Fire

MARION, Ohio (AP) — Two Ohio men honored as heroes for their actions after a 2009 car crash are now suing the woman they rescued from a burning vehicle.

The Columbus Dispatch reports the suit filed in central Ohio's Marion County by David Kelley and Mark Kincaid claims Theresa Tanner was at fault and that saving her left the men with disabling injuries. They're each seeking upwards of $25,000 in damages.

Kelley tells the newspaper (http://bit.ly/poAg4a ) the smoke and fire did so much damage to his lungs that he can no longer carry a laundry basket upstairs in his home. He says he saw hair melting on Tanner's head and is haunted by those memories.

Court records don't list an attorney for Tanner. Her husband told the Dispatch the family isn't commenting.
