Woman Sues Google Maps: Lawsuit Alleges Google Maps Is Responsible For Her Getting Hit By A Car

Apparently, a woman in Utah is suing Google Maps because their walking directions sent her to a highway with no pedestrian walkways, and she got hit by a car trying to walk across it.

I suppose in a land where people can sue McDonald’s for making them fat, it was only a matter of time until someone started lobbing lawsuits at the Google Maps service.  And, to be fair, the woman is also suing the driver of the car that hit her. So, she is spreading the blame around.

Although if she really wanted to sue everyone responsible for her car accident, maybe she should think about serving her parents with some papers. After all, aren’t they responsible for not teaching her to look both ways before crossing the street? Especially if that street just so happens to be a busy highway with no pedestrian paths…
