The Indianapolis Star reports that one of the victims of an Indianapolis motorcycle accident has taken the first step toward filing a lawsuit.

The injured party has given notice of tort claim, contending that her injuries were a result of carelessness and negligence of a police officer acting within his scope of employment of the city of Indianapolis during the Indianapolis motorcycle accident.
