Komo News reports that a lawsuit filed over a bike rickshaw crash fatality in Seattle was filed by the family of Peter Dzioba. The lawsuit filed claims that the bike rickshaw (or pedicab) company failed to inspect the brakes on the rickshaw vehicle which failed and caused the rickshaw to run through a red light. When the rickshaw ran though the red light, it crashed into a minivan.
This collision lead to the crash fatality. Peter Dzioba died from the crash. He was thrown from the vehicle and rolled underneath the minivan. His wife Mary Dzioba and the driver were also injured from the impact.
The company that operated the bike rickshaw in question is Cascadia Cabs. The owner of the company responded by saying that the brakes were working properly and that the driver should have never used the vehicle on such a steep hill.
