A Canadian man who sued a 10-year-old after he jogged into the back of her bike, fell over, and injured his shoulder, has lost his case.
Rosario Perilli alleged that the girl had contravened Motor Vehicle Act laws governing cyclists on the road by cycling without due care and attention, changing direction or speed without signalling and cycling on a pavement while riding abreast with other cyclists.
He also alleged that she failed to "maintain an adequate lookout" and failed to "take any or adequate steps” to avoid colliding with him.
Perilli included the girl's grandparents, Wendy and Patrick Marlow, in the lawsuit on the basis that they didn't properly teach her to ride a bike safely.
