Woman Who Killed Teen on Bike Suing Parents for Emotional Distress
What is this world coming to? A woman who killed a 17-year-old boy on his bike is suing his parents for the emotional distress she supposedly endured.
Somehow, I suspect the parents’ “emotional distress” was greater.
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.
It says a lot about our culture that a woman could hit a group of teens on bikes and not only blame everyone but herself, but try to collect a paycheck for it. Shameful.
