A woman from New York is suing Target because one of its concrete bollard balls came loose
from a Target store and damaged her vehicle.
The court papers claimed that Eilen Grady was driving her 2015 Nissan Rouge slowly through
one of Target’s parking lots when a two-ton red bollard ball smashed into her driver’s side door.
“Red bollards are installed by Target and situated in front of Target’s stores to prevent vehicles
from careening into Target’s storefronts,” the suit states. “Once the red bollard was dislodged
from its location, it immediately rolled into the crowded parking lot into oncoming traffic.
Target knew or should have known of the dangerous condition of the red bollards located in
front of the premises.”
According to the suit, Target also failed to repair and maintain the bollard and thus “failed to
exercise reasonable care, diligence and prudence” of its operations.
Grady is seeking over $100,000 in damages
