Bicyclist Gets Nearly $100G After Fall on Icy Trail

A bicyclist who was injured when he hit a patch of ice and crashed on a pedestrian/bike path in Florence last winter has reached an out-of-court settlement worth nearly $100,000.

The president of the Florence Park District says he's disappointed in a system that allows a man riding a motorized bicycle on a winter night on a trail that doesn't allow motorized vehicles to receive an insurance settlement. Half of the settlement came from a Florence bar because snow was pushed onto the trail when the bar parking lot was plowed.

John Cornish tells the Ravalli Republic for a story published Monday that people should know riding a bike at night in winter is a little dangerous.
