A school is situated near the edge of town. The main entrance was located next to a busy road. There were bus stops on either side of the road and a pedestrian crossing near the school gates.
A 14-year-old boy was playing with a ball while waiting for his parents to pick him up at the school entrance. A car driver passing the school hit the boy as he ran out into the road.
Both the boy's legs were broken and as this was not the first time that such an accident had taken place the school was severely reprimanded. The driver was also taken to court for driving offences.
