Spokane man sues Idaho for negligence because of potholes

Kasey Crick, 22, of Spokane has filed a lawsuit against the state of Idaho alleging that Idaho’s negligence in repairing potholes caused a motor vehicle accident on Interstate 90 which left him with serious injuries.

Crick filed the lawsuit after Idaho did not respond to a tort claim he filed in 2007. In his negligence lawsuit, Crick asks for $500,000 in compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and for tuition for missed school.

According to an Associated Press article that appeared in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Crick suffered a broken pelvis and other injuries after a series of mishaps caused by potholes in the road.

The maintenance coordinator for the Idaho Transportation department had received complaints about the potholes but that weather prevented resurfacing the road.
