Idaho Woman Claims She Was Dragged By Bus


A North Idaho woman has filed a lawsuit against Kootenai County, claiming she was dragged behind a bus.

This morning's Coeur d'Alene Press reports that Allison Cavilee of Post Falls had placed her bicycle on a rack at the rear of a Citylink bus in September 2011. According to her suit, Cavilee said she began removing her bike from the rack but the driver pulled away too soon, dragging her for 15 feet. Cavilee said she suffered injuries to her arm, back and neck, in addition to her bicycle being damaged.

Cavilee's lawsuit claims damages in excess of $20,000 and attorney's fees.
