A Charlottetown city councillor who is being sued for allegedly running over a woman’s foot denies any wrongdoing.
Coun. Mitch Tweel filed his statement of defence on Jan. 25. It said the accident was caused by the plaintiff’s negligence or other fault and neglect.
Last month, Kelley Caseley filed a statement of claim alleging Tweel ran over and stopped on her foot with his car as she was crossing an intersection in Charlottetown.
Caseley claimed Tweel moved his car then drove her to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
He denied Caseley suffered any injuries and put it to her to prove that she did.
Tweel’s statement of defence listed six possible ways in which Caseley might have been negligent and caused injuries she may have suffered.
They included that Caseley tried to cross the street where there wasn’t a crosswalk, she didn’t look both ways before crossing and crossed without regard to her own safety.
