Motorist blames transit authority for crash injuries

By Jenie Mallari-Torres | Nov 8, 2017

ORLANDO — A motorist is suing a transportation authority, alleging one of the defendant's bus drivers caused a crash that injured the plaintiff.

Princess Walker filed a complaint Oct. 17 in Orange Circuit Court against Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority, doing business as Lynx, alleging the defendant breached a professional standard of care.

According to the complaint, on Oct. 28, 2013, Walker was stopped at a red light at North Mills Avenue and Nebraska Street in Orlando. The suit says she sustained severe injuries, physical and emotional injuries, mental anguish, medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of earnings, and other consequential damages when Josean Alicean, who was operating a Lynx public bus, slammed into the rear end of Walker's vehicle. 

The plaintiff alleges Lynx failed to adequately train, instruct, and monitor its employees in the operation of public vehicles.

Walker seeks trial by jury, damages of more than $15,000 and and all future relief the court deems just and proper. She is represented by attorney Frank Mascara of Mascara Law Firm in Lake Worth.
