PARK CITY, Utah (AP) -- A woman who says she relied on Google for walking directions in Utah that got her hit on a major roadway has filed a lawsuit against the Internet company claiming it supplied unsafe directions.
Lauren Rosenberg filed the $100,000 lawsuit Thursday in U.S. District Court in Utah. It also names a motorist she says hit her.
A Google spokeswoman also did not return a message from The Associated Press seeking comment.
Rosenberg says she used her BlackBerry to download walking directions from Google Maps between two Park City addresses.
The Los Angeles County resident claims the directions led her to walk through Park City on a road without sidewalks that she says isn't safe for pedestrians.
Rosenberg couldn't be reached Tuesday. Her attorneys did not return messages.
