The city of Lake Worth Beach has been fighting to keep jurors in a future lawsuit from seeing a video of a wreck involving a city truck and a postal worker.

The city’s attorney said the video might unfairly sway a jury in an upcoming lawsuit.

Surveillance video recorded in September 2020 showed postal worker Christy Trimbath while she was stopped on her route.

A Lake Worth Beach garbage truck later smashes into her postal vehicle.

“Candidly, it is disturbing. It’s violent. It’s graphic,” Lake Worth Beach city attorney Ann Breeden said while arguing that jurors should never see it. “That’s going to inject some matter of shock value into this case that’s not really necessary.”
