A Delta woman who says she has suffered life-altering injuries after being hit by “Ice Bombs” from the Port Mann Bridge is suing the company responsible for bridge maintenance.
A claim has been filed in BC Supreme Court against Transportation Investment Corporation.
Caryl-Lee Obrecht was a passenger in a vehicle heading eastbound and was hit, multiple times, the ice falling above, coming in through a collapsed sun-roof.
Her lawyer is Veronica Milne-Medved:
“She has got like a post-concussion syndrome, which gives her issues with concentration, and memory. It gives her problems sleeping, she has had a lot of flashbacks and nightmares from the accident, and she still has whiplash as well.”
Milne-Medved says T-I Corp. was aware of the risk, and still allowed motorists to be in harms’ way.
The corporation has not filed a defence and these allegations have not been proven in court.
The bridge has since been modified to prevent similar ice-buildup.
