A woman who struck three teens on bikes while driving her SUV, killing one and injuring the others, is now suing the deceased teen, his family, and the other two boys. She is claiming $1.35 million in damages for her psychological suffering.
The 17-year-old, Brandon Majewski, and his two friends went out for a bike ride at 1:30AM on the morning of the accident in Simcoe County, Ontario. “I know they should not have been out there that late,” Brandon’s father said. “But they are good kids.”
The group was struck from behind by an SUV, killing Majewski and seriously injuring his friend Richard McLean, 16, who sustained a broken pelvis and other bones. His other friend, Jake Roberts, also 16, was knocked off of his bike but didn’t sustain any serious injuries.
According to the Toronto Sun, Sharlene Simon, a mother of three and the driver of the SUV, is now suing Brandon — the dead 17-year-old boy — as well as Brandon’s family and his two friends. She is also suing the county of Simcoe for failing to maintain the road.
