Bicyclist sues city over Ballard Bridge accident

Posted by Geeky Swedes on July 29th, 2008

Last summer Terry McMacken was riding across the Ballard Bridge next to that low concrete wall when he was thrown into traffic and struck by a car. He lost his arm in the accident, and now he’s suing the city of Seattle, reports the Seattle PI. McMacken’s attorney says the city had received prior complaints that the Ballard Bridge guardrail is too low to protect cyclists. The city has not yet responded to the suit in court.
