$3.7 Million Dollar Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed

The family of Lindsay Leonard has filed a wrongful death lawsuit for $3.7 million against the city of Portland, Oregon. “Leonard was crossing a street in 2009 when she was hit and killed by a passing car, and her family is claiming that a streetlight above the crosswalk was not lit, the lawsuit said. Additionally, the lawsuit claims crosswalk markings were in "disrepair" and that the city had known about the potentially hazardous issues at the intersection for at least a year prior to the collision.” In addition to naming the city of Portland as a defendant, the lawsuit also names Portland General Electric (PGE) as responsible for the unlit streetlight, the driver of the vehicle - who was not charged by police in the incident - and the driver's company, which owned the car.
