Passenger Injured by Friend’s Reckless Driving
Our client, a passenger in his friend’s vehicle, was traveling on a county road in Napoleon Township. While travelling at speeds of 90mph and higher, the driver ran a stop sign and lost control of the vehicle, sending the vehicle airborne and off the road. The vehicle rolled several times before coming to rest upside down in a ravine. Our client used the driver’s side window to get out of the vehicle, then crawled across a field until he reached the nearest home for help. He was taken to the hospital and found to have several injuries including a fractured knee.
