The Bloomington-Normal Pantagraph is reporting that the mother of a girl who ran over a teenager when she was allowed to drive a car without a license will have to spend a day in jail and pay $1 million to the victim’s family.
The victim is going to have to spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair as a result of injuries sustained in the accident.
Assistant State’s Attorney Daniel Brannan told the Pantagraph that the mother “chose to gamble by allowing her daughter to drive with no formal training. When she chose to do that, she put people at risk. Essentially, the worst did happen.”
