A Naperville teen who struck two pedestrians during a driver’s education class last year has been named in a recent lawsuit.
The student is accused in a DuPage County lawsuit of striking a teen and her friend last July 12, 2013 in Naperville. The suit also names the father of the motorist, since she is a minor, and Indian Prairie School District 204, which owns the vehicle involved in the accident.
According to the police report, the 15-year-old Waubonsie Valley High School student had just made a right turn when she “somehow kept pressing the gas pedal instead of the brake” and lost control.
