What’s the Problem?
July 28, 2017 – According to the lawsuit, O’Toole hired Uber driver Abdallah Ahmed to take him to dinner before a concert in Amarillo, Texas. Ahmed allegedly got lost on his way, stopped his vehicle on the highway to check his app, and was rear-ended at high speed by another vehicle.
The crash fractured O’Toole’s neck and caused other “serious injuries,” the complaint states.
O’Toole was scheduled to perform at the Houston Livestock Show Bar-B-Que Contest, but was forced to cancel that and several other shows following the accident. The incident also delayed video shoots and a promo tour for his new album, “American Kid,” that was released in March.
In response to the increasing number of accidents involving rideshare vehicles, Uber, Uberx and Lyft have announced a new insurance policy program that will provide for up to $50,000 per person and $25,000 for property damage in an accident involving one of its vehicles. This is on top of the $1,000,000 coverage for accidents when a trip is in progress.
