Company Sues Cyclist For Sidewalk Damage
MITCHELL, S.D., Nov. 7 (UPI) — A South Dakota concrete company is suing a woman who allegedly rode her bike on 195 feet of wet sidewalk.
Big-O-Concrete, which poured the sidewalk Sept. 2 along Pebble Beach Road in Mitchell, said Diana Reiner ignored orange traffic cones and warnings from bystanders when she left a trail on the walk, forcing the company to tear up and replace the concrete, The (Mitchell) Daily Republic reported.
The company charges Reiner with negligent property damage and intentional property damage.
The lawsuit is seeking $5,736.25 to cover the cost of replacing the sidewalk as well as unspecified punitive damages and court costs.
