FORT WORTH — A Tarrant County jury has awarded more than $11 million to the family of a boy who was seriously injured after being struck by a car driven by another child in the parking lot at Texas Motor Speedway.
The parents of Ryan Davies, who was injured in 2006, sued the speedway after an accident left the boy with traumatic brain injuries that limit his mobility and mental capacity.
The other boy lost control of a miniature race car while driving across a parking lot to enter the Lil’ Texas Motor Speedway, a paved one-fifth mile track at the speedway. He narrowly missed a trailer and several parked cars before slamming into Davies, who was playing football with other boys in the parking lot.
The jury on Monday found the speedway 80 percent responsible and found that the boy’s parents, Angela and Richard Kenyon, were each 10 percent responsible. They said the young driver was not at fault.
A lawyer for the speedway declined to comment on the judgment Monday evening.
