This case involves an accident that occurred in a school’s parking lot. The plaintiff, a twelve-year-old male at a rural school, was crossing the faculty parking lot in order to get to school. The faculty’s parking lot was adjacent to the school’s playground, and students who walked to school frequently crossed through the parking lot. On his way across the parking lot, the student was struck by a teacher driving her car through the parking lot. As a result of the incident, the student suffered a fractured hip, leg, and multiple lacerations to his upper and lower body area. It was determined that the school parking lot did not have any designated crossing area for students to walk across the parking lot to the school. Furthermore, there were no posted signs to warn drivers of surrounding students.
