Injured bicyclist sues city of Columbia, MoDOT, drivers

MU student Krysten Chambrot, who was seriously injured in a bicycle collision August 18th, has sued the City of Columbia, MoDOT, and two drivers involved in the incident.

According to an article in the Columbia Missourian:
Chambrot filed a personal injury lawsuit against the city, the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission, Arens and Pope for $25,000 each, plus legal expenses, on Aug. 26 in Boone County Circuit Court. . . .

In the lawsuit, Chambrot claims that Arens and Pope failed to keep a careful lookout.

Jeffrey Parshall, the attorney representing the city of Columbia and Arens, said Chambrot crossed the street against a red light. “The city vehicle was proceeding through a green light,” he said.
