On the heels of BC Liberal leader Christy Clark running a red light with her son and a reporter in the car (see here) comes the revelation that Clark had an accident lawsuit pending which was finally settled out of court just prior to the election:
A statement of claim for the 2008 accident alleges the plaintiff was struck from behind by a vehicle driven by Clark, then a CKNW radio talk-show host. Mark Marissen, Clark’s ex-husband, was also named in the action as the leaseholder of the vehicle, along with Volvo Canada.
Court documents show Clarke and Marissen admitted in the course of legal discussions that Clark did hit the car, but disputed the injuries to the plaintiff among other items. (see here)
Wonder if she was going to run a red light and the person in front decided to stop?
