$5.25M award in 1st fatal bikeshare crash

A lawsuit in the 2016 death of a 25-year-old woman on a shared bike has ended in a $5.25 million award to her family. The family declined a $500,000 settlement offer and sought $13 million at trial.

Chicago resident Virginia “Ginny” Murray was struck by a flatbed truck while riding a Divvy bike-share bike. After her death, the North American Bikeshare Association issued a statement saying it was believed to be the first bike-share death in the U.S.

Murray’s family sued the truck driver, Cosmin A. Radu, and his employer, A&B Hardwood Flooring Supplies.
