Woman Who Ran Over Three Teenage Cyclists, Killing One, Now Experiencing Episodes of "Irritability"

Posted by Dan Savage on Mon, Apr 28, 2014 at 10:14 AM

So she's suing the boy she killed and that boy's family and the other boys she ran over. Toronto Sun:

Brandon was struck from behind by an SUV and killed while his friend Richard McLean, 16, was seriously injured with a broken pelvis and other bones. His other pal Jake Roberts, 16, was knocked off his bike but sustained only scratches. Now the driver of the SUV, Sharlene Simon, 42, a mother of three, formerly from Innisfil, is suing the dead boy for the emotional trauma she says she has suffered. She’s also suing the two other boys, as well as the dead boy’s parents, and even his brother, who has since died. She’s also suing the County of Simcoe for failing to maintain the road....

In a statement of claim filed with the court, Simon is claiming $1.35 million in damages due to her psychological suffering, including depression, anxiety, irritability and post-traumatic stress. She blames the boys for negligence. “They did not apply their brakes properly,” the claim states. “They were incompetent bicyclists.”

She runs over three boys on bikes and they're the dangerous incompetents who didn't "apply their brakes properly."
