Family of cyclist hit by socialite gets $635,000
A civil lawsuit filed against a Villanova socialite who pleaded guilty to a hit-and-run car accident has been settled for $635,000, the victim’s attorney announced Thursday.
Richard Hollawell, a Philadelphia personal-injury lawyer, represented the family of 13-year-old Andrew Mallee, of Bryn Mawr, which benefited from the settlement.
The boy was struck and seriously injured in 2009 while riding his bike along New Gulph Road near Bryn Mawr College.
The driver, Suzanne Lammers, became rattled by police sirens and left the scene without checking on the boy, police said. She told investigators she thought she hit a deer, but police found her car under a tarp inside her garage, concealing the front-end damage.
Lammers was convicted of leaving the scene of an accident causing injury, and served a 90-day prison sentence.
