Shayla Owens vs. Lincoln County Board of Education
PA- Travis A. Griffith; J- Jay M. Hoke
* Personal injury suit contends School Board did not follow its own bylaws and policies leading up to a motor vehicle accident May 2006 on WV Route 3 near Danville, Boone County, where driver David E. Owens, Sr., was fatally injured and passenger Shayla Owens was seriously injured. Prior to a middle school softball game at Sherman, Board decided not to provide bus transportation for Hamlin Middle School players, according to complaint, and the deceased David Owens acted as an "approved volunteer"..."performing duties within the scope of employment" driving the minor student after the game. His vehicle was struck head-on by another driven by Michael D. Hall. Accident investigation determined no improper vehicle operation by Owens. Shayla Owens seeks jury judgment in an amount to fully and fairly compensate her for "negligent acts and omissions of the Defendant, "as well as litigation costs, interests, and such other relief deemed appropriate.
