San Dimas Gives Excellent Settlement to Injured Teen
San Dimas, the California community that was such a bummer for Bill and Ted, proved itself generally unfriendly to teens when it installed a dangerous fence that put a beauty queen and top student in permanent medical care.
The teenager was driving through the city in April 2005 when she lost control of her car and slammed into a fence built by the city. The wooden logs from the fence pierced her car and her head, leading to severe brain damage.
The damage has permanently crippled her body and mind, forcing her to live in permanent 24-hour care, rely on a wheel chair for locomotion, and communicate with hand signals rather than speech.
Her parents sued the city of San Dimas on her behalf and recently received a settlement $9 million in which the city acknowledges no fault.
Her family continues to seek treatment for her, and she continues to improve and hopefully the money will ensure she gets the best possible care.
