Randall v. American Medical Response, Multnomah County Case No. 16CV15837

This case involved the collision of an ambulance and a bicycle. The cyclist was badly injured and later took her own life. Plaintiff Randall was the personal representative of the estate of the cyclist. Randall sued American Medical Response (AMR) alleging that the AMR driver was negligent for not keeping a proper lookout and not staying within her lane. Randall sought $249,005.77 for past medical expenses and $250,000 for non-economic damages.

Defendant AMR denied liability and argued that the crash happened when the cyclist got her tire caught in the Max light rail train track, causing her to fall into the passing ambulance.
