This case involves two fourteen-year-old females who were operating a go-cart without adult supervision when they were struck by an oncoming automobile. The plaintiff, a fourteen-year-old-female, was visiting her friend and was left under the supervision of the friend’s mother. The friend lived on a farm, and she had recently received a new go-kart as a Christmas present. The mother needed to go to the store and left the home to run errands, but permitted the girls to ride the go-kart while she was away. Subsequently, the girls took the go-cart out, and drove it unsupervised, on the road. They were struck by a fast moving automobile while attempting to cross oncoming traffic. As a result of the accident, the plaintiff suffered significant injuries including a concussion, a broken shoulder, and a large laceration which required fourteen stitches.
