A sixteen year old boy was riding his brother's old bicycle, which had just been fixed up by a neighborhood bicycle repair shop. Driving the bike down a hill toward an intersection, he saw a truck pull out in front of him. He squeezed both brakes, but only the front brakes worked, and as a result he was thrown over the handle bars and under the truck, suffering severe orthopedic injuries. Suit was brought first against the bicycle repair shop and subsequently against the truck driver. Both defendants settled before trial.
