Cars are not the only vehicles that use our local roadways.  Millions of bicyclists also use them every day for both work and leisure.  While a healthy and cost-effective method of travel, cycling also runs the risk of potential harm from other vehicles and obstructions. This was sadly proven true this past week when a Utah driver struck and killed a cyclist.

Twenty-five-year-old Josie Johnson was riding her bike in Big Cottonwood Canyon, Utah when she was struck from behind by a vehicle driven by sixty-seven-year-old Elizabeth DeSeelhorst.  Tragically, Johnson died as a result of the collision.  DeSeelhorst was convicted of class A misdemeanor negligent homicide.  He was sentenced to probation, six months home confinement, 320 hours of community service and fined $4,625.  That did little, however, to compensate or comfort Johnson’s family.

To recover for their losses, Johnson’s parents filed a wrongful death lawsuit and sued DeSeelhorst in civil court.  To compensate for their pain and suffering, and their daughter’s pain and suffering and expenses, the Johnson family received a settlement of $2.5 million in personal injury damages.
