Driver Sues Dead Cyclist for Damage To His Audi


Fred Conrad, New York Times
Melissa Arrington has nothing on Spanish businessman Tomas Delgado when it comes to being callous and cruel about killing cyclists. He killed 17 year old Enaitz Iriondo with his Audi A8 and had to pay 33,000 euros compensation because his insurance company acknowledged that he was driving too fast, but now he is suing the dead kid's family for causing $20,500 in damage to his audi and another 6,000 euros for the rental while his car was being repaired.

"I'm also a victim in all of this, you can't fix the lad's problems, but you can fix mine," Delgado said, ahead of a January 30 legal decision on his suit. ::Yahoo News thanks, eclary!
