Travel Plaza Transportation LLC, a tour bus company, has agreed to settle a lawsuit arising out of a bicycle accident that resulted in a tri-athlete becoming a paraplegic. John Henderson, 35, participated in several Iron Triathlons World Championships before being struck from behind while riding on a paved shoulder along a public highway. John Henderson was stuck by the bus, thrown 90 feet, and was severely injured. The Plaintiff’s medical bills exceed $700,000. His doctor estimated that the Plaintiff’s future medical care would be several hundred thousand dollars a year for the rest of his life. The Plaintiff is now advocating passage of a bill in the state legislature that would make it illegal for a vehicle to pass within three feet of a cyclist.
