Cyclist Sues Comcast After Being Clotheslined By Low-Hanging Cable Line

Last week, an Oregon man sued Comcast and a Portland garbage company over a Feb. 2015 incident that allegedly resulted in injury to his spine and ribs. According to the complaint, Comcast had run an elevated cable line across a street in Southeast Portland, but the line was not high enough. A garbage truck subsequently contacted the line, causing it to sag. The plaintiff says he was riding his bike down this street in Feb. 2015, and ran into the cable neck-first. – Chris Morran, Consumerist
