PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A Portland bicyclist is suing not only the pickup driver who hit her and shattered bones across her body, but also a second driver she says gave the truck the OK to turn.
The Oregonians reports (https://bit.ly/1GONXHz ) that Cynthia Lewellen is seeking $670,000 in damages for the November accident. She filed the lawsuit Wednesday in Multnomah County Circuit Court.
According to her suit, the pickup driver turned in front of another driver, then slammed into her as she rode in the bicycle lane.
She says the second driver gave an “all clear” wave, signaling that the Ford F-250 could turn in front of him.
The lawsuit says the crash fractured Lewellen’s pelvis, shoulder, ribs, sacrum and tailbone. She also went into cardiac arrest and stopped breathing.
