Ontario Driver Who Struck Teen Suing Dead Boy and His Family

BARRIE, Ontario - Still in the throes of agony after an SUV struck and killed their bike-riding son, the parents of young Brandon Majewski are now reeling after they learned the driver is suing their dead child.

"I feel like someone kicked me in the stomach - I'm over the edge," the dead boy's father, Derek Majewski, said.

Brandon, a spunky and handsome 17 year old bike enthusiast, was out with two buddies at around 1:30 a.m., on October 28, 2012, when they hopped on their bicycles to go for hotdogs.

Not long after, an SUV crashed into the boys, killing Brandon and badly injuring his friend Richard McLean, 16, who suffered a broken pelvis and other serious injuries. His other pal, Jake Roberts, 16, received only scratches.

Now the driver of the SUV, Sharlene Simon, a mother of three, is suing the dead boy for the emotional trauma she says the crash has caused her. She's also suing the two other boys, as well as the dead boy's parents, and even his brother, who has since died. She's also suing the County of Simcoe, located north of Toronto, for failing to maintain the road.

Even the family's lawyer is in shock.

"In all of my years as a lawyer, I have never seen anyone ever sue a child that they killed," Brian Cameron said. "It's beyond the pale."

Brandon's mother, Venetta Mlynczyk, said she's devastated.

"She killed my child and now she wants to profit from it? She says she's in pain? Tell her to look inside my head and she will see pain, she will see panic, she will see nightmares."

Simon's statement of claim says the boys were negligent.

"They did not apply their brakes properly," the claim states. "They were incompetent bicyclists."

Brandon's father shakes his head.

"They're kids!" he said. "And they have a right to make mistakes...it was a wet, dark road - what about slowing down?"

He insists the reflectors on the bikes would have been visible.

A police report says Simon was driving an estimated 90 km/h in an 80-km/h zone.

The report also states, "no breathalyzer was performed" - a point Cameron intends to delve deeper into, he says.

Simon's husband, a York Regional Police officer, was driving behind his wife that drizzly night, but, little is mentioned about him as a witness in the police report. He pulled over when Brandon was struck, and shortly after both were allowed to go home. It was another witness who pulled over to tend to Brandon and called 911.

Six months after the funeral, Derek Majewski, found his son, Devon, dead after popping pills and drinking. The family is convinced the 23 year old didn't try to kill himself, but was just trying to stifle his grief.

"This has ripped our family apart," Majewski said. "And now this woman has the gall to try to profit from our dead child she killed? Profit from another boy who was almost crippled?"

Cameron has launched a routine lawsuit against the driver, mainly for medical and funeral costs on behalf of the boys and their families. He alleges Simon was speeding and may have been intoxicated and talking on her cellphone.

No court date has been set to test any of the allegations.

QMI Agency has contacted Simon's lawyer for comment.

The photo of the other teen with their mother is, Devon, the brother who also died after Brandon's death.

The only Sharlene Smith who comes up in Ontario is the woman in the small picture, but, I cannot confirm or eliminate her as the suspect. She has a profile at linkedin.

I hope the judge throws the case out in disgust.

Re: Ontario Driver Who Struck Teen Suing Dead Boy and His Family

Wtf? She was speeding and it was raining and she's blaming these kids because they didn't stop their bikes before she hit them? And wth is she suing the dead kid's brother for? What the hell does he have to do with it? It sounds like he wasn't present during the accident. The whole thing with her husband, the cop, being there but not a witness and them leaving the scene so fast sounds fishy to me.

Also, no breathalyzer test was performed. She may have been drinking, too.

Just a guess here, Meg, but, the teen killed was a minor. She could sue the parents, but, I think the bitch is grabbing at straws because they sued her first.

I don't know how the older brother is included.

Sounds like a fuck up all round.

'May have been on the phone and drinking', so being married to a cop means no breathalyser?
