That’s not my headline. It’s — in its own inimitable style — the New York Post‘s.
The Daily News is a bit gentler: “Conn. man files $15 million lawsuit against NYC, Citi Bike, claiming nerve damage from bike crash.”
The gist of the stories — the Daily News’ is (surprise!) a bit longer — is that a 73-year-old man flipped over at a Citi Bike docking station last fall. He claims that nerve damage in his brain has robbed him of his senses of taste and smell.
He is believed to be the first rider in New York City’s bike-sharing program to file a personal injury suit.
The “old man” is Ronald Corwin — former Westport Planning and Zoning Commission chairman.
PS: The New York Times has not yet picked up the story.
