The city of Clarksville maintains that it does not own the section of greenway where a bicycling accident occurred, which led to a personal injury lawsuit, The Leaf Chronicle reports. The plaintiff in the case maintains that she fell into a ravine after dismounting her bike to push it up a hill, and that the city was negligent by not including guardrails on elevated segments of the greenway. The city hired a surveyor to evaluate the area, and determined that the location where the fall happened is on property owned by the Advance Development Company. City attorney Lance Baker said the case may head to trial in July.
