Woman Hits Three Bicyclists And Kills One, Now She Is Suing Them

According to USA Today, Sharlene Simon, 42, was driving home from a bar the night of October 28, 2012, when her SUV hit three teenage boys who were riding their bicycles. Simon claimed she had only had one drink at the bar with her husband, Jules Simon, a York Regional Police officer who was following her home in his own vehicle. Richard Esch, who was 16 at the time, suffered a shattered pelvis in the accident and is still undergoing rehabilitation for his injuries.

Esch’s friend, 17-year-old Brandon Majewski, was killed by the impact. A third friend was thrown from his bike but suffered only minor injuries. A toxicology report indicated the teens had no drugs or alcohol in their systems. Simon is now suing the families of all three victims saying she has suffered emotional trauma as the result of the accident. She is asking for about $1.35 million in damages. Her husband has also filed a suit. Esch’s father, Terry Esch, said “If this woman was a real person, with a real heart, she would not have done this to us … we have nothing."

Majewski’s father, who was not named in the USA Today story, said six months after the accident, his 23-year-old son was found dead of an overdose that he said was the result of grief, not a suicide. Majewski's dad went on to say, “This has ripped our family apart. And now this woman has the gall to try to profit from our dead child she killed? Profit from another boy who was almost crippled?” Majewski’s family has filed a separate suit asking that Simon pay for burial costs, loss of work pay and trauma counseling. Simon’s attorney, Michael Ellis, said his client was forced to file the suit to protect herself financially. Ellis explained, “She would have lost everything. She would have been destitute … homeless.”
