Teen's help nearly kills woman outside church

July 23, 2012

By Guest Opinion,

In a case of a good Samaritan deed gone horribly wrong, a 17 year old teen tried to help an 82-year old woman trying to park her car at the Holy Rosary Church in Portland.    The woman, Mary Hart, accepted the help. Upon backing up the car the teen accidentally left the car in reverse (or did not release the brake) causing the car to move backwards. The car door was open which hit Hart as it rolled backwards. The injury sent Hart to the hospital for three weeks.  Hart suffered brain injury and is currently living in a nursing home with severe dementia.

Now the case has turned into a lawsuit. The suit charges $910,000 in damages and faults the parents for not stepping in on the actions of their son. Read more.
