EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (AP) - An Eau Claire couple is suing the Village of Boyd over injuries caused by a sinkhole on one of its streets.

Thomas and Dawn Stagliano are seeking unspecified damages in Chippewa County Circuit Court.

Their lawsuit says Thomas Stagliano stepped off a curb and into a sinkhole in Boyd after leaving the American Legion Post after dark in March 2012. He fell and injured his Achilles tendon, an injury he says continues to bother him. The couple says the village was negligent in not putting up a barricade around the hole.

The Chippewa Herald (https://bit.ly/1dfksbs ) says the village earlier denied Thomas Stagliano’s claim.
