Attorney: Teen’s Accident Caused By Calaveras Negligence

Sponsored by:

San Andreas, CA — Attorneys for an Avery teenager hit by a car last September have filed a negligence claim against Calaveras County.

15-year old Jason Knight was hit by a car while riding his bike near Avery Middle School.

His attorney says the county failed to maintain the property and allowed a vision obscurity to exist on Moran Road where the accident occurred.

The Board of Supervisors denied the claim at its meeting Tuesday. County Counsel Jim Jones says he reviewed the claim, and concluded there was no liability on the county´s part.

Knight´s attorney now has six months to file a lawsuit.
