On a sunny afternoon, a wife and husband were riding their bicycles on a bike trail in Warren County, Ohio. As the couple approached a crossroad, they stopped and looked for oncoming traffic. Seeing no vehicles in the area, the husband proceeded across the road first. He heard a crash behind him and turned to see his wife had been run over by an SUV.
It was later determined that the driver of the SUV had been stopped on a side street and then made a left turn across the road our clients were crossing on their bicycles. As a result of the accident, the wife suffered fractures to both of her legs, requiring extensive surgery and the placement of hardware.
