Woman sues Mill Creek MetroParks over leg fracture

YOUNGSTOWN — A Canfield woman, who said she suffered a leg fracture after stepping into a deep hole hidden by grass along a gravel service road on the Mill Creek MetroParks Farm, has sued the MetroParks and Mahoning County for more than $25,000.

The lawsuit, which demands a jury trial, was filed Friday by Mary Moskalik, of Cool Road, who said her injury occurred June 30, 2011, causing her to incur $52,654 in medical bills due to the park district’s negligence.

Mill Creek MetroParks leases the educational farm from the county.

MetroParks Treasurer Kevin Smith said the park system’s insurance company is aware of the claim, and the company’s lawyers will handle it, if necessary.
