Death crash driver sues family of dead teen

A Spanish businessman who killed a young cyclist in a road traffic accident is making a compensation claim against the dead youth's family.

The man was driving his top of the range Audi when he was involved in a night time collision with a 17-year-old cyclist in 2004. The teenager died instantly in the car accident and a police investigation later revealed he had been riding without lights or reflective clothing.

A successful road accident claim was made several years ago by the dead youth's family against the car driver's insurance company because he had been driving at excessive speed when the smash occurred.

But now the driver has made a compensation claim of his own, demanding almost £15,000 for the damage that the youngster's body caused to his car.

Justifying his personal injury claim, he told journalists: "I'm also a victim of all this. You can't fix the lad's problems, but you can fix mine."

The dead teen's family are understandably distraught at the impending accident claim and commented: "This was the final straw, a kick in the teeth."
