Boy, 14, Driving SUV Killed in Crash

Wednesday early morning the police responded to a fight in a Phoenix neighborhood, when they saw an SUV driving with its lights off.

When the police tried to stop the vehicle, the driver fled and crashed into a wall.

The 14-year-old driver was killed and another team tried to run away but was caught.

The SUV belonged to one of the teens’ parents.

We extend our condolences to the family and friends of the dead boy.

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.
