OROFINO, Idaho (AP) - The family of a bicyclist struck and killed by a Clearwater County sheriff’s deputy driving an unmarked vehicle has filed a lawsuit against the county seeking $500,000 in damages.

The Lewiston Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/29O96NZ) that the family of 61-year-old Theresa A. Grossklaus filed the lawsuit last week.

Grossklaus died at the scene on July 18, 2014, after being struck by Deputy Mitchell B. Jared.

Idaho State Police say Grossklaus and Jared were both traveling east. Police say Grossklaus was riding near the right-hand fog line and Jared was traveling less than an inch from the fog line.

No charges were filed against Jared, but Idaho State Police concluded he didn’t see or react to Grossklaus.

The lawsuit contends Jared was careless and negligent.
