Couple sues city over condition of sidewalk

A Tustin couple has sued Huntington Beach over a bicycle accident in which the wife was injured after her wheel became lodged in a crevice in the pavement.

Darlene and Gerald Goens, who filed the lawsuit June 1, claim that she suffered injuries that prevented her from going to work after she was thrown from her bicycle in July 2011 near the Beach Hut at 21529 Pacific Coast Hwy.

The lawsuit argues that the sidewalk was improperly maintained and names the state and county as additional defendants.

The Goenses, who previously filed a claim against the city over the incident in November, seek more than $25,000 in damages.
