The Orange County Register article, "Parents Target Cities, Schools for Teen's Crosswalk Death," discusses the recent claims filed by Michels & Watkins on behalf of the parents of Sydney Ramirez, a 16-year old girl who was struck and killed in a crosswalk near her high school. The claims were filed against the cities of La Palma and Cypress as well as the high school district and other agencies for negligence. "The entities were aware for years that the crosswalk constituted a dangerous condition...and that a collision was both foreseeable and inevitable," the claims say. "The fact that the crosswalk increased or at best did not eliminate the danger of collisions was well known to entities, their employees, and the traffic engineer."
