A federal judge has allowed the addition of a negligent entrustment claim in a wrongful death lawsuit against a national armored car company. The lawsuit arises out of an auto-pedestrian accident in which an armored car driver ran over a pedestrian, taking her life. The armored car driver stated that he saw the victim prior to hitting her, but he was driving too fast as he was turning and could not come to a stop.
The negligent entrustment claim alleges the armored car company knew the armored car driver was unfit and inexperienced to drive armored trucks, yet hired and continued to employ him up to the day he fatally struck the victim. Further, investigation reveals the armored car driver had multiple speeding violations in the year prior to this incident. This should have been a clear indication that the armored truck driver should not have been behind the wheel multi-ton truck.
