CLEARWATER — A motorist is suing Uber and a driver, alleging negligence caused a crash that injured the plaintiff.
Donald Larsen filed a complaint Dec. 19 in Pinellas County Circuit Court against Rashier LLC, doing business as Uber, and Craig William Bolen, alleging Uber negligently allowed Bolen to operate a vehicle.
According to the complaint, on May 15, 2017, Larsen was involved in a motor vehicle collision with the Uber vehicle driven by Bolen in Pinellas County.
