SANTA ANA, Calif. (CNS)—The mother of an autistic 15-year-old boy killed in a golf cart crash on a school campus last year reached a $7.5 million settlement with the Orange Unified School District, the family’s attorneys announced Oct. 2.
Micaela Sanchez Corona sued the school district, located in Orange County, in November 2019.
Her son, Manny Perez, jumped onto an idling golf cart on Sept. 9 last year and slammed it into a railing on the campus of El Modena High School, where he attended special education classes.
The school district agreed as part of the settlement—which court records indicate was reached on Sept. 14—to update its policies and procedures to improve golf cart safety and to dump the ones deemed by experts to be obsolete, according to the mother’s attorneys.
