The family of a teenage bicyclist who died after being hit from behind by an SUV is now being sued for more than $1 million by the woman who was behind the wheel.

Sharlene Simon claims in court papers the accident caused her “great pain and suffering” and accuses her victim Brandon Majewski 17, and his two friends of negligence, calling them “incompetent bicyclists,” the Toronto Sun reported Friday.

The lawsuit drew an angry response from Brandon's family. “I feel like someone kicked me in the stomach -- I’m over the edge,” his father, Derek Majewski, told the Sun. “Sometimes, it makes my blood boil.”

The dad's attorney Brian Cameron told the Sun that in all his years as a lawyer, he had never seen anyone ever sue a child that they killed. “It’s beyond the pale,” he said. He is representing the elder Majewski in a separate lawsuit that seeks $900,000 in damages from Simon.
