Wood has permanent disabilities because of the crash. The lawsuit contends the officer who started the chase was not properly trained. The chase ran through downtown Wichita at speeds up to 75 mph before the collision with the Woods' car. 

City spokesman Jim Jonas declined to comment on the lawsuit.
