High School Student Dies in ‘Car Surfing’ Accident

Wednesday afternoon a Kent-Meridian High School student died after being hurt while “car surfing”.

Tuesday afternoon Lupo Benson, a senior, was riding on the outside of a car when he lost his grip and fell on the ground.

The video captured by campus cameras shows Benson on the hood of a car as it was moving around the parking lot.

Benson died Wednesday from his injuries.

We extend our condolences to the family and friends of Lupo Benson.

If a child is injured, the statute of limitations is complicated. ORS 12.160 states that the time for bringing the lawsuit does not start being counted until the child turns 18. However, the time limit will never be extended for more than five years, nor will it be extended for more than one year after the child’s 18th birthday.

This statute creates confusion for many people, some lawyers included. So if your child has been injured, in either an auto crash or another type of accident, protect their rights (and your financial well-being) by considering a qualified injury lawyer. Our Portland personal injury lawyers offer free consultations.
