A car driver is being sued by a man from Park Ridge who claimed that he was hit, slammed into the car hood and then hurled into the street just before his home in the suburbs.
The victim, Matthew Conrardy, of the 200 block of North Hamlin Avenue, filed a lawsuit last Monday before the Circuit Court of Cook County against Sean Nicholson. Conrardy allegedly that Nicholson hit him with his car and speed off without showing any concern. Other recipients of the law suit were Martin Nicholson and Joy Mason, who are co-owners of the run-away car.
According to the lawsuit, on the 22nd of November, Nicholson with three friends parked his car in front of the residence of Conrardy in Park Ridge home on Hamlin Avenue. When Conrardy saw the car, he went out to investigate.
As Conrardy was passing in front of the parked car, Nicholson alledgly started the vehicle in gear and hit Conrardy. The victim slammed into the hood and was hurled right into the street. Meanwhile, Nicholson immediately drove off and fled from the scene of the crime. This was clearly contained in the lawsuit.
Martin Nicholson and Joy Mason, co-owners of the car, appeared to be irresponsible by allowing an unreliable person to drive their vehicle.
Timothy Whiting, the firm representing Conrardy, did not answer any phone calls until Monday night. While co-owners of the car, Nicholson and Conrardy, were not available to give their comments.
