Toronto Woman Kills 17 Year Old On Bicycle, Then Sues His Family For $1.35 Million For Psychological Suffering

This is EASILY the most WTF story I’ve read in quite sometime. Truly appalling. Not surprising it comes out of Canada:

A woman who struck three teens on bikes while driving her SUV, killing one and injuring the others, is now suing the deceased teen, his family, and the other two boys. She is claiming $1.35 million in damages for her psychological suffering.

The 17-year-old, Brandon Majewski, and his two friends went out for a bike ride at 1:30AM on the morning of the accident in Simcoe County, Ontario. “I know they should not have been out there that late,” Brandon’s father said. “But they are good kids.”

The group was struck from behind by an SUV, killing Majewski and seriously injuring his friend Richard McLean, 16, who sustained a broken pelvis and other bones. His other friend, Jake Roberts, also 16, was knocked off of his bike but didn’t sustain any serious injuries.

According to the Toronto Sun, Sharlene Simon, a mother of three and the driver of the SUV, is now suing Brandon — the dead 17-year-old boy — as well as Brandon’s family and his two friends. She is also suing the county of Simcoe for failing to maintain the road.

“In all of my years as a lawyer, I have never seen anyone ever sue a child that they killed,” the family’s lawyer, Brian Cameron, told the Sun. “It’s beyond the pale. I just couldn’t bring myself to tell them on the phone.”

The parents were told in a face-to-face meeting on Tuesday. Brandon’s mother, Venetta Mlynczyk, said:

“I’m devastated, I’m in shock. … She killed my child and now she wants to profit from it? She says she’s in pain? Tell her to look inside my head and she will see pain, she will see panic, she will see nightmares.”

Simon is claiming $1.35 million in damages due to “depression, anxiety, irritability and post-traumatic stress.”

The South Simcoe Police report shows that Simon admitted to driving at 90 km/h in an 80 km/h zone and also states that no breathalyzer was performed, “although police say no alcohol was suspected and no charges were laid.”

The Sun states that the police report mentioned little of Simon’s husband, a York Regional Police officer, who was driving behind his wife during the accident. He pulled over when the boys were struck and drove his wife home shortly after.

Cameron, the family’s lawyer, has filed a lawsuit against Simon for medical and funeral costs on behalf of the boys and their families. He alleges that she was speeding and may have been intoxicated and talking on her cellphone.

“They did not apply their brakes properly,” Simon’s claim states. “They were incompetent bicyclists.”

So yea, I’m really sorry about killing your kid….Now give me $1.35 million!!!

Seriously though, let’s review what happened here. Smokeshow struck not one, but THREE people on bikes. From BEHIND!! Smokeshow was speeding, albeit not by that much. Smokeshow may have been intoxicated, but we’ll never know because her cop husband got her out of there right afterwards. Smokeshow was likely distracted by her cell phone.

Yea, that sounds like a good reason to get $1.35 million from the family of the kid you just killed. Granted it probably wasn’t wise for these kids to be biking at 1:30 AM. But I mean, what’s her excuse? This?

There is nothing I distrust more than “psychological suffering.” Whenever I hear that I just assume the person’s making it all up because you can’t prove that someone’s not psychologically suffering. Any idiot can fool a psychologist into thinking they’re suffering, get a “doctor’s note” and sue the pants off anyone. Seriously, we’ve got rich kids getting away with murder because they have “affluenza,” murderers getting taxpayer funded sex changes because they’re “transgender,” and feminazis working from home because they’ve got PTSD from cyberbulling on Twitter.

You know what makes this even worse? She has a support page on Facebook.

Ho-Lee-Shit. This can’t be real. But it is. This lowlife piece of human garbage is bragging about getting settlement money on Facebook and blaming a dead kid that she ran over while she was drunk. The whole world is fucked.

You know what pisses me off about this? People are always trying to tell me how awesome Canada is. It’s supposed to be this socialist paradise where everyone has health care and unlimited lap dances. Doesn’t seem that much different from the USA. Connected lady (her husband is 5-0) can get away with murder? Person who is obviously wrong can sue a person who obviously did nothing wrong? Sounds like the fat people around here who sue doctors for “fat shaming.”

Everything about this woman is truly American in nature though. She killed someone. She is a criminal. Instead of her getting punished everyone else is blamed. It’s the town’s fault for not keeping the roads up. The kid’s fault for making themselves human speed bumps. The family’s fault for causing her to have depression, anxiety, and PTSD.

Just more of the usual. Stories like this never end, so at least we’ll never run out of material. But this is just one of the shittiest things I’ve ever read.

    Counter sue her, she deserves 20 years in prison + 5 extra years for being a bitch about it.
    She didn’t suffer at all, she killed someone.
    GUILTY.

    in the law of my country, he would be suspended and sued for court, she would be already arrested, with court waiting with probability of 10 years prison, for causing death and driving after alcohol, she would loose drive license too.

    You guys are trying to make jokes of the situation, you’re pathetic. As for this Sharlene Simon bitch….she deserves to get run over by a fucking 18-wheeler…twice!!!

    This story is everything that is wrong with our society these days. People lose site of the fact that a person got hit and killed on their bike!!!

    This woman is a cunt, and her cop husband is clearly a real piece of fucking garbage! Who the fuck takes two different cars home from their arcade? If you ask me, they’re both typical pieces of trailer trash shit that drink and drive on a regular basis. PS, cops are notorious for that!

    You can bet this POS didn’t have any trouble finding a POS Lawyer to represent her – I really am surprised this happened in Canada – this is the kind of crap that has made America truly great – burgler sues homeowner for getting shot or electrocuted by the homeowner, Murderer sues remaining family members for mental anguish, etc.

    Sharlene Simon is a terrible person. I don’t care how much someone is suing you for, you don’t sue the family of a person you killed. If it was dark, foggy, and the roads were in bad condition, why were you driving OVER the speed limit?
    Lastly, the Majewski family might as well counter sue Simon for their own emotional distress.

    I hope nothing happens out of this as both parties were at fault. Sharlene Simon should live with the guilt, just like the Majewski family is.

    All this will catch up to Sharlene one day, and the heartless, insignificant suit she filed will humiliate her.

      How were the kids at fault?

      • Kylee

        On the road middle of night, would seem they were not visible. Would say both parties were at fault, they should have had lights, at night stuff is hard to see if not well lit.

          Being a kid who used ride his bike out late at night, there is such a thing as low and high beams on your vehicle. Any decent driver can see 3 kids on bikes with low or high beams on as well as avoid them. At the very least, bikes have reflectors on the back. Being an adult who used to drive home from work at 1am, yes I have seen some late night bicyclists. With my high beams on, I could see them well enough to know they are there. And yes the area in which I road my bike and drove my car was an 80km/h zone.

          “Stuff is hard to see if not well lit”? High beams on the vehicle! Or at least low beams on the vehicle would light up the kids enough for her to see them so she can avoid them.

    I am absolutely disgusted with this woman and the fact that she thinks she can make up some excuse and have the decency to file a lawsuit against someone who’s life she took. Whether she’s Canadian or not, any decent human being would feel remorse for the life she took and the family who has suffered a great loss. I, being Canadian am truly ashamed of the people we are supposed to call “heroes” in this country. I am very sorry for the terrible loss of the Majewski family and the friends that were involved. I would love to see this woman rot in jail and I pray that she gets the justice she clearly deserves.

    Bicycle’s are considered a “road vehicle” if you hit another vehicle from behind you’re at fault, and obviously you were the one who did not apply their breaks properly. I am also pretty sure that bicycle brakes, even if they’re top caliber, wont stop a 2000-4000lb piece of metal traveling at 90km/h

    • June 26, 2014 at 7:23 pm

      True but “road vehicle’s” in most states are required to have two working red lights on the rear after sunset. Not sure about the Canadian law. Not that I agree with her suing the family

    Truly sad that any person would seek to gain financially from such a tragic incedent. My thoughts go out to the family and the young man they are the real victims here. With a 10 year court case looming…they will never be able to repair themselves and move on, because it will be relived again and again until this selfish, self-centered, greedy woman decides she has enough compensation for a tragedy SHE caused!

      Yea seriously… As if this shit doesn’t happen almost every day in the US, at least we don’t have people suing McDonalds for being fat or because their coffee is too hot. Yet one person in YEARS or decades attempts to pull the same shit that any American citizen would do in a heartbeat in order to cash out, and this turtleboysports douchebag says it’s not surprising it comes out of Canada? Had they not mentioned where this happened, everyone in the world would have thought it happened in the US… Seriously, turtleboysports needs to go fuck himself… Typical ignorant american cunt…

They were incompetent bicyclists”…Are you serious!? You hit them from behind…HOW ARE BREAKS GOING TO CHANGE IF YOU HIT THEM OR NOT!

        In Canada a car hits another car from behind, the car behind gets charged, case closed . As for the woman, i do believe she was drunk, since her husband follwed her, then left the scene of the accident to bring her home. Where did he get a license to be a police officer, bubble gum machine? Both of them should be charged, as for the children on their bikes at 1.30am, big deal, they are entiltled to freedom, they weren’t out shooting peopke, robbing anyone or raping someone. What was she doing out at 1.30am ? . Hitting 3 bikes, hello !!!! I am discusted that this demand by the lady was even mentioned in the paper, what were they thinking? So sad that victims become the preditor!!!

      U are whats wrong. How did they kill themselves. They didnt run themselves over. And she should have been paying attention to whats in front of her. It’s her fault anf she should be ashamed of her self for sueing a grieving family whom she was responsible of there loss.

      You’re an ignorant fucking moron, She was speeding and Hit not one, but THREE People, you have to completely clueless, or distracted by a phone, or intoxicated to that. All the fault is her own, she diserves nothing but a needle in her arm and her life gone instead.

    Why would her cop husband be following her home at 1:30 AM? Probably because she had been drinking. I don’t know if a breathalyzer is standard procedure in a crash like this, but if so, her husband and every cop that responded should be suspended without pay. They obviously take care of each other, and swept her inebriation under the rug. And we’re supposed to think these cops are heroes because a few men in blue in a different country died in a terrorist incident thirteen years ago. These guys are Ontario Strong.
