Driver Sues Dead Teen Victim’s Estate after Accident

A woman who hit and killed a teen 18 months ago, Sharlene Simon, has announced her decision to sue his estate for more than $1 million. Simon formally launched a suit against the estate of Brandon Majewski, who she hit and killed in 2012 along Innisfil Beach Road. 17-year-old Majewski was riding with two 16-year-old friends at about 1:30 a.m. on October 28 when they were hit by a vehicle. Majewski failed to survive the accident while one of his friends received serious injuries.

According to a statement issued by Simon’s lawyer, Michael Ellis, his client “relives the terror of this incident every day.” Ellis alleged that Simon “has been unable to return to work since the collision. She has been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. She is also a victim.” It was added that police investigation has acquitted Simon and ruled the collision “a complete tragedy”. Ellis alleged that “they were riding in the middle of an unlit road at 1:30 a.m. Their bicycles were not properly illuminated, nor did they have the proper reflectors” and “while everyone should feel sympathy and compassion for the families of the cyclists, we must also remember that there is another family who is hurting as well.”

South Simcoe Police confirmed on Saturday that no charges have been filed against Simon. Staff Sgt. Steve Wilson added that “we review all fatal collisions with our Crown Attorney’s office. Based on the review of this collision, there was no reasonable prospect of a conviction on any charges.”
