Woman contends she was run over and dragged along Boardwalk after being hit
The Town of Ocean City and a Boardwalk tram driver are headed to court in November in a lawsuit filed by a woman who alleges she suffered a traumatic leg injury when a tram struck her in September 2017.
Mona Jones, 64, and her husband Gregory Jones, both of Westminster, are suing for $75,000 plus attorney fees stemming from a tram collision on the Boardwalk near Eighth Street that occurred on Sept. 16, 2017.
The lawsuit claims Jones was struck while dismounting from a bicycle next to a bench, and alleges the 2003 model tram car in question was in disrepair due to rusty mechanisms.
According to the lawsuit, the tram driver who hit Jones was heading south near Eighth Street and was moving back to the center of the Boardwalk after passing another tram.
