Woman Loses Leg – Sues Driver of Car
The San Mateo Daily Journal reports a woman who had her let amputated after being pinned against a wall by a car has sued the driver.
The woman was with her daughter and other Girl Scouts on March 8 selling cookies when the driver plowed into them, leaving both mother and daughter seriously injured.
The lawsuit alleges the driver pulled into a disabled parking spot and began to get out of the car without putting it into park while the car was still rolling. The driver quickly slammed the door and instead of hitting the brakes, he hit the gas, causing the car to launch forward.
The complaint contends the woman and her daughter suffer permanent injuries that will continue to incur medical expenses.
