Ron Davenport and Theresa Johnston granted summary judgment by the Circuit Court of Montgomery County.  Plaintiff alleged that the Defendant ran over the Plaintiff with his truck, causing injuries. However, the evidence showed that the Plaintiff’s injury was purely accidental. Because the Plaintiff was a guest in the Defendant’s vehicle, and Alabama’s Guest Statute requires evidence of the defendant’s wantonness for a guest to recover, summary judgment was granted in favor of the Defendant.
