SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A Sioux Falls woman is suing Walmart after she was injured when a customer driving a motorized shopping scooter crashed into her.

A civil lawsuit filed in Minnehaha County this week claims Walmart was negligent in its instructions on how to operate the scooter. Eighty-five-year-old Versella Grasz was shopping at a Walmart in Sioux Falls in June 2017 when the driver of the scooter crashed into her right side. The lawsuit says Grasz was brought to her knees in pain and taken to a hospital.

The lawsuit does not specify a requested damage amount. The Argus Leader reports Walmart says it regrets Grasz was injured, but says the customer operating the scooter was responsible for the woman's injuries.
