A driver who knocked over and killed a teenage cyclist is suing the dead 17-year-old for the “emotional trauma” she has suffered.

Brandon Majewski, from Alcona in Canada, was out cycling with friends in the early hours of a wet night in October 2012 when he was hit from behind by Sharlene Simon’s car.

Brandon was killed, his friend Richard McClean seriously injured, and another boy Jake Roberts sustained sctratches.

But now mum-of-three Ms Simon says she is suing Brandon, as well as his parents, his brother – who has since also passed away – and the two others boys over the crash.

The Toronto Sun reports that in a statement filed at court, Ms Simon is claiming $1.35 million in damages because of her psychological suffering, including depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress.

She adds: “[The teeangers] did not apply their brakes properly.

“They were incompetent bicyclists.”

But Brandon’s devastated parents have been left horrified by the claim.

His dad, Derek said: “I feel like someone kicked me in the stomach. I’m over the edge.”

His mother Venetta Mlynczyk added: “I’m devastated, I’m in shock.”

“She killed my child and now she wants to profit from it? She says she’s in pain? Tell her to look inside my head and she will see pain, she will see panic, she will see nightmares.”

A lawyer for the boys’ families has also launched a law suit against Ms Simon, covering medical expenses and funeral costs for Brandon.

The Toronto Sun said Ms Simon’s lawyers did not respond to a request for comment.
