UPDATE Ron Corwin, former chair of the Westport Planning and Zoning Commission, has filed suit against New York City for a bike accident that he says left him unable to taste and smell.
The suit against the city and Citi Bike’s private operator seeks $15 million, according to New York press reports. Corwin told WestportNow he could not comment on the advice of his attorney.
“This has turned my life inside out,” Corwin, 73, told the New York Daily News. “I do nothing now but go from one (medical) specialist to another trying to find some relief.”
Corwin, who served on the P&Z from 2005 to last November, including five years as chair, said he rented a Citi Bike last Oct. 25 at E. 56th St. and Madison Avenue. As he was leaving the docking station, his front wheel struck a low barrier near the station.
