Student protester hit by car as she blocked freeway sues UC San Diego

The University of California-San Diego is now embroiled in a personal injury lawsuit after an election protest gone wrong.

Mariana Flores, a sophomore at UCSD, was demonstrating against Donald Trump’s victory on a busy San Diego freeway when a vehicle hit her. The accident crushed her pelvis, fractured her leg, and caused other serious injuries, reported The Guardian campus newspaper.

Flores, in her suit filed in late November, partly blames campus officials for her injury, arguing they should have stopped the protest before it got dangerous, according to news reports.

Flores’ attorney did not respond to requests from The College Fix seeking comment. A UC San Diego spokesperson said that the university could not comment on pending litigation.

The Nov. 2016 protest had began at “Library Walk” and journeyed through campus. Next, demonstrators ended up on the I-5, a very large and busy eight-laned freeway that cuts through San Diego.

The car that stuck Flores had gotten around an emergency vehicle that had been attempting to block traffic so authorities could shut down the freeway, according to the Los Angeles Times.

In an interview with The Guardian, Gene Sullivan, Flores’s lawyer, asserted that the university planned, organized and knew the protest was happening for hours and did nothing to stop it.

“According to Sullivan, not doing anything and failing to act is legally the same thing as supporting the protest,” the newspaper reported. “Sullivan further alleged that the protest was encouraged by people in positions of authority at the university, and that ‘if anyone that is in authority with the university – a [Residential Advisor] – says ‘let’s go,’ the university would be responsible.’”

The complaint also lists the University of California Regents, the city and county of San Diego, the state of California, and the driver of the vehicle as defendants in the lawsuit.

When asked about the lawsuit by the Los Angeles Times, Sullivan said “We think it’s a case of shared responsibility of the school, Maria and the driver, and we’re not saying that anybody is without fault or fault-free. We think other people bear some responsibility as well.”

In addition, Sullivan explained that if any person representing the university, even if that person is simply a Residential Advisor, encouraged students to go to the protest, then the university would bear responsibility.

While Sullivan admits that Flores is partially responsible for her injuries, he claims that, under the doctrine of comparative responsibility, the jury will get to decide what percentage of the injury is the fault of the plaintiff and what percentage of the injury is the fault of the defendant. Damages will be levied based on percentage.

The lawsuit seeks attorneys’ fees, court costs, and unspecified damages, the Times reports.

    If the collagen stop the protests, she would now be suing them for infringement of First Amendment rights.

    • Dana Miller

      Exactly.

    • Angel

      Unfortunately she will win the case or be awarded a high sum of money,

      • DrDean

        They will settle. She can’t win the case, but her attorney knows how the system works. The UC system in CA is corrupt to the bone and the money they will give her is not theirs, but the tax-payers of CA so they don’t care.

      I live near, and often work around a major state university. My experience with a large number of university students is that they are incapable of crossing the street without adult supervision.
      I have witnessed an incredible amount of these children auditioning for a career as hood ornaments.

        AMEN, she’s indicating the school wasbreaking the law allowing it, so she in turn was breaking law to by being out in the middle of the street. She also not a infant child who the school has to have a attending watching her 24/7. So SHE SHOULD NOT BE able to sue the school, state, county, or anybody else connected with her stupid Ingorant actions. Any stupid ambulance chaser LAWYERS who takes a case like that Deserve to LOSE THE ONE SHIRT HE OWNS.BEING THAT STUPID YOU KNOW THAT’S ALL HE HAS. LOL

    • lspanker

      WINNER, WINNER, CHICKEN DINNER!!!

    • Mr_Smith01

      She is right to a point, it doesn’t absolve her of her own stupidity. Anyone going to college today is participating in the highest PRIVILEGE in human history. Unfettered access to study, learn, test and develop ideas. When the adults that run that institution fail to provide structure and guidance, or worse fan the flames of stupidity that’s on display in culture today, I think they should be held accountable.

      • suerobb

        Did the University tell her SPECIFICALLY to go block traffic on I5?

      • DukeSteele

        “Provide structure and guidance”. Isn’t that her parents job BEFORE she goes off to college to spend…waste their money? And the taxpayers?

      • Norm Weaver

        The problem is, THEY DON”T DEVELOP IDEAS! They aren’t actually taught that critical thinking is good and end up regurgitating the mostly Liberal S H I T that is shoved down their throat.

      • jane171307

        but she’s an adult. they wouldn’t have been able to tell her what she can and cannot do.

    • suerobb

      Who? No one told her to try to block an freeway with her body.

    • Fubr

      Who let her out of her bubble wrap in the first place?

  • ThatsWhatSheSaid

    Just like a liberal…always blame someone else for your stupidity

    • John_In_Michigan

      But, but – you didn’t stop me from walking on to a freeway! It’s all your fault!

  • Alan Williams

    People who own cars work to pay road taxes. As such, stopping them from using the pre paid product is theft.

    • H. Mueller

      And also a violation of their right to freely travel.

      • NoBS

        Stopping on a freeway can cause accidents. With a mob of angry “Car Jackers” attempting to threaten my children’s safety. A credible threat on my children requires one to escape the threat and is legally self defense.

        It is also an excellent time to teach our children the price of irrational anger and why riots require a harsh price.

  • Ben Vincent

    So if the school shuts down the protest — there are riots and they get sued. If they don’t shut down the protest, there are riots and they get sued …

    • m a

      If the police show a large and determined presence, and actively enforce order, vice standing around like potted plants looking the other way, there aren’t riots.

  • EndTimesComing

    I guess an idiot freeloader walking in traffic on a very busy Interstate Highway bears no responsibility for getting hit then, right? It’s everybody else’s fault. Hey, stupid, they don’t have cross walks on Interstate Highways. You step into traffic whizzing along at 60+ miles and hour, you get hit. Duh. This needs to be tossed out of court forthwith, but it won’t. Judges were lawyers once, and know lawyers make their bucks with ridiculous suits like this.

    • ShamanMcLamie

      I often drive that very same freeway and it was late at night. A lot of drivers feel more comfortable driving much faster and not being the most attentive when the roads are way less busy and aren’t normally expecting people blocking the freeway. They arguably picked the worst and most dangerous time to spontaneously block the freeway.

    • carrabelle

      I feel great sympathy for this child. As juror I could easily award her $5.

      • Tatiana Covington

        She could buy some candy. Maybe a used comic book or two.

  • pchs 1967

    So the university held you at gun point and forced you to block a highway? That driver should have backed up and hit you again dummy.

  • Mike Clarke

    “….asserted that the university planned, organized and knew the protest was happening for hours and did nothing to stop it.” If this is true, and he school has to pay. it would teach a good lesson to all colleges to stay out of politics. Then perhaps, they will educate and not indoctrinate.

  • MentorRes

    Hopefully she got some stupid knocked out of her

    • MichaelZWilliamson

      Not enough. She’s still alive and liberal.

    I feel that the driver should had said: “Oh well.”

    • m a

      I feel the driver should be suing her and the school as well for the damage to their car and the emotional trauma.

  • bc3b

    This stupid woman is definitely a Darwin Award finalist.

    • m a

      Not yet, but she is demonstrating the skills and attitude to be a real competitor.

      • Kurt Akemann

        Actually, given the rules for Darwin Awards she would be eligible if she was rendered infertile by the accident. The key criteria is that the stupid accident removes the fool’s ability to procreate; the accident does not have to be fatal.

        • m a

          Thank you. I hadn’t considered that possibility.

        • lspanker

          Something tells me a crushed pelvis will put her in the running…

  • PavePusher

    • MAGAman

      I like it, straight and to the point.

  • BH

    If they were no longer on campus property, then how does she even remotely figure that the university is responsible? Like others have said, if they tried to stop the protestors, that would have gotten a different lawsuit.
    I’m sorry- but you block a highway, you get what you deserve. The law enforcement officers should have been forcibly removing them (or just let them walk and let traffic do what traffic does). “Survival of the fittest”

    They don’t understand that the Constitution does NOT give you the right to block or infringe on the rights of others. It says you can PEACEFULLY assemble, and yes you can speak. It does not say you can forcefully stop me from moving around- be it a sidewalk, or a highway.

    I can only imagine what our country will look like 20 years from now when the kids in college and high school NOW are the ones in running it. Heaven help us (literally)

    • m a

      Unfortunately, she probably wasn’t a physics major and was part of the ‘reality is what you wish it is’ identity politics group.
      No idea that reality doesn’t care what you believe. 2 ton vehicles moving at 70+mph have a specific amount of energy, limited maneuvering ability, and a driver handicapped by visibility limitations of the human visual system and reaction times of the human nervous system.
      Reality beats wishful thinking. Every. Single. Time.

  • MichaelZWilliamson

    So, isn’t her lawyer in part responsible for enabling the behavior?

  • KeenIncite

    I hope she succeeds in her lawsuit, because if she does, that will be the end of all future leftist protests. The school will shut them down in a skinny minute to make sure no one gets hurt.

    • m a

      I doubt it, at least the state schools. To them it’s just taxpayer money, not theirs. Even private institutions the faculty may just see it as the rich white donors money, those evil people actually contributing funds to the school.

  • MichaelZWilliamson

    So THAT’S what intersectional feminism is….

    • m a

      Yeah, she was a little confused about it though getting on a freeway instead of blocking a street intersection.

      • MichaelZWilliamson

        She intersected with the bumper, and there’s even a vector discussion to be had.

        Oh, I forgot. Math is sexist.

  • LRob

    Her stupid attorney, Sullivan, should be disbarred.

    Where is personal responsibility? She put herself in harms way, on a blinkin’ freeway for God’s sake, and now it is everybody else’s fault she got hit?

    Disbar the attorney, send her to a mental institution for the criminally insane.

  • Rich Walker

    So, using this logic …. the person leading the protesters into the road should be held responsible, the organization sponsoring the protest would be responsible, and if the police were notified of the protest, they would be responsible for not insuring safe conduct of the protesters while violating the laws of the state/county as well as common sense. I now guess that the US is responsible for the safety of hikers on federal lands who fall or run into bears, snakes or other climatic difficulties – if you pay for admission, the country is responsible if there just happens to be a blizzard or wildfire regardless of existing hazards or projections. It is indeed logical that there would be moving traffic on a multi-lane highway – the girl assumed the risk – and the consequences for her actions! Telling a college employee of your idiotic plan does not transfer the responsibility to the institution for your stupidity – she should be expelled.

    Her lawyer probably got their law degree from a Title IX Inquisition Intern program to support that type of reasoning.

  • tchall

    Under that theory we ALL share in the responsibility for her injury… after all I certainly didn’t travel to her campus and attempt to stop her either… did you?

    • Tatiana Covington

      Nah, screw her… in second thought, don’t, then there’d be more of her idiot children.

    • BaconLovingInfidel

      I psychically urged her on into traffic, the freeway drivers to accelerate towards her, and the paramedics to slow down and get donuts and coffee.

  • Cogsys

    These children don’t even know enough not to walk in traffic?

  • EF

    Stupid hurts

  • H. Mueller

    Hehe. It was hilarious watching the video, the ka-thunk when the vehicle hit the simpleton was great.

    Actually, the University should not be sued. Even if they were responsible, (which of course they are not), they could actually be commended for giving this little simpleton a teaching-learning moment.

    You see, the simpleton very likely learned the lesson that her parents failed to teach her, (or it didn’t soak in), that lesson being to stay the f**k out of the highway, you might get hit by a car you dumb b**ch.

  • m a

    Apparently, college kids today need remedial kindergarten for a variety of reasons. Respect for others and being able to listen to opposing opinions as well as basic safety. The whole- if someone tell you to do something stupid, you still don’t do it.
    They could even learn the song about crossing the street I taught my kids when they were kindergarten age:

    Stop, look and listen
    Or your head could be missing
    If you trust to your luck,
    You might get hit by a truck.

  • Oilfart1

    All she would have had to do to avoid injury was to stay off the freeway. Sounds like she’s 100% culpable in her injuries. Driver of the vehicle was where he was supposed to be, on the freeway.

    • m a

      yeah, I’ve got a kid who attends UCSD. She didn’t walk on a freeway in the middle of the night. Weirdly, she didn’t see UCSD or others appearing to ok doing stupid stuff as making it any less stupid. As a result, she didn’t do stupid stuff and wasn’t run over by a car.

  • Oilfart1

    I used to have an uncle who told all the cousins to go play on the freeway when we were a pain in the ass. It was his way of preventing us sharing our genetic material to form another generation. Her parents should have done the same.

    • TotesBrave

      My MOM would tell me and my brother to go play in traffic when we got on her nerves, but only when grocery shopping! This was back when shoppers could smoke in the aisles!

    She should have stopped “demonstrating” as soon as she saw the traffic was dangerous.

    • m a

      If only she’d paid more attention in either kindergarten or physics regarding the dangers of 2 ton objects traveling at 70mph controlled by human beings. She’d have known traffic is dangerous to pedestrians.

  • Vladimir Sonovabitch

    Although I hope she recovers from her injuries, she is a complete idiot. Does she not know what “free will” is? She didn’t have to walk out into traffic like a dolt. I hope she not only loses her suit, but the judge makes her pay the other sides legal bills. Freaking stupid liberal.

  • Kelly Reilly

    all protestors blocking the road should be hit with cars…..I hope the car is ok, and I hope the driver sues her for any damage their car may have incurred….

    Anyone dumb enough to block a freeway deserves whatever they get. The school is in no way responsible for her stupidity.

    Darwin award for her. Blocking traffic is very stupid and very dangerous. If I were trying to get a loved one to the hospital and people are blocking traffic, I’m not stopping.

  • creativeusernamehere

    Not walking into a busy intersection let alone a highway is something that most parents teach their kids. It’s not the university’s fault that she didn’t have enough brain cells to rub together to not do something so dangerous and stupid.

  • Nathan Benson

    ….You stood in the middle of the freeway you pathetic child masquerading as an adult! Your average six-year-old knows enough not to do that. The world owes you nothing. You got what was coming to you.

  • ItsPolitics101

    And here I thought college was for enlightenment, and helping the next generation understand the world in which we live in all matter, ways and disciplines.

    Now I know college can’t actually fix Stupid. Or maybe this numb-skull always crossed the road on her own iconic of the cliché, “Why did the chicken cross the road”?

  • DrDean

    The protesting students declared the I-5 freeway a “safe-space”. Reality demonstrated itself. Again.

    Seriously, the behavior of these students is that of mass obsessional behavior, more commonly known as mass hysteria. I’m convinced that Hillary’s epic, though completely predictable, loss triggered the vast majority of the useful-idiot levels (99%) of the Left into what could well be the largest and most intense case of mass hysteria on record.

    Street leftists/progressives/liberals and even most of the upper ruling echelons are true-believers. That is when one considers the Left as a religion where the deity is big, all-powerful government from which all good things flow (or would if Trump weren’t POTUS…) then their behavior makes a lot more sense.

    The truth is that the Left has a lot in common with Islam in terms of their irrational beliefs and hatred of those who choose not to submit to their ideological dogma. Both are authoritarian movements. Both are highly prone to violence to achieve their ends. Both are profoundly un-American.

    My kids learned not to play in traffic when they were 5. College students claim that their sex lives should not be under the supervision of their schools; I should hope that it would be obvious that they should not have to supervise them to ensure they don’t run out on a freeway.

    Neither a University nor it’s agents have any business encouraging anyone to participate in or not participate in a protest. As the University of Chicago explained in it’s free speech position:

    “In a word, the University’s fundamental commitment is to the principle that debate or deliberation may not be suppressed because the ideas put forth are thought by some or even by most members of the University community to be offensive, unwise, immoral, or wrong-headed. It is for the individual members of the University community, not for the University as an institution, to make those judgments for themselves, and to act on those judgments not by seeking to suppress speech, but by openly and vigorously contesting the ideas that they oppose.”

  • Michael Labelle

    I wonder what “triggered” her to run out into the traffic?

  • NoBS

    The cops allowed the Snowflakes on the freeway, where pedestrian traffic is ILLEGAL for a reason.

    Aiding and Abetting Terrorism is a criminal offense if we had legitimate police force.

    Maybe the FBI can share their Clinton Bribery profits to help this pathetic Snowflake with a new pacifier and diapers.

      Because the cops have no legal liability if they do nothing, whereas if they act and anything bad happens they could be held liable.

      California government code:

      845. Neither a public entity nor a public employee is liable for
      failure to establish a police department or otherwise to provide
      police protection service or, if police protection service is
      provided, for failure to provide sufficient police protection
      service.

      ….

      846. Neither a public entity nor a public employee is liable for
      injury caused by the failure to make an arrest or by the failure to
      retain an arrested person in custody.

    I hope she wins this lawsuit. I hope she becomes a role model for even younger snowflake liberals who see their rights and needs as paramount. I hope she continues her important struggle against our President until his 4th year in office, and perhaps into his second term. I hope the UCSD creates a well-funded office dedicated to the support of protest and to the protection of anti-establishment movements. I hope the UCSD dismantles all conservative student groups and expels their members on the basis of hate, racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, agoraphobia, and expression of opinion not in line with liberal thought. (Did I do good, Hillary Clinton?)

    I take the 5 everyday. Drivers get very heated if they can’t move. Students are insane to think that drivers desperate to get to work should stop because a group of teens who mast*rbate themselves to the Communist Manifesto decide to jump on the road and scream slogans.

    This silly student is lucky that it was just ONE car that hit her.

    She gets the Darwin award for protesting on a busy freeway.

  • Rick Schwifty

    Gee, most people learn not to play in the street when they first learn to walk. How did she get into college?

  • kirkmcloren

    I knew not to play on the freeway as a 3rd grader

  • Phillip Privett

    Disgusting liberal pig!

  • deejayj

    Of course she blames someone else lol.. typical

  • andrewwhitehead

    What she is claiming is that the university had a duty to protect her from her own stupidity.

  • james

    ahhhh the left….

    If your agenda is to build a nanny state, then you produce adult babies who need to be nannied…

    I’d hire a candidate with a High school Diploma before I ever hired someone with a degree from a California university.

  • LibertyLoonie

    I can certainly see her as a puppet of the university. It would not surprise me at all if these students were sent to protest by some Gender studies professor. I’d love to see if the university is found guilty…maybe it make universities think twice about being so damn political.

  • Brian Assanowicz

    Sadly, the school and State will probably settle and this moron will get a huge pay day.

  • TotesBrave

    This video has become my go-to when I need a good giggle! And, what makes it even funnier is her thoughts afterward… the school should have kept me off the f*cking highway!

  • Robert Zraick

    So she walks out into traffic and it is someone else’s fault?

  • AConcernedCitizen

    One of the first things a child learns is to look both ways before crossing the street. To even intimate that anyone other than the protesters sponsible for her injuries is irresponsible. And if the university HAD tried to stop the protest, the scream would have been loud and clear about their free speech rights being stomped on. You can’t have it both ways people!

  • Kurt Hines

    Nothing is ever a lefties fault.

  • hstamb

    How about a little personal responsibility? Even very young children know not to play in traffic. If you stand in the middle of the road with the sole intent of blocking traffic.. and not to enhance the safety or enable the rescue of another person…

    You have it coming.

    Further, the driver nor the university should bear responsibility. She was trying to unlawfully detain people.

  • docwatson55

    “More duct tape please … head exploding …”

  • IstvanIN

    It should be declared entirely her fault. If you are stupid enough to stand in a freeway you deserve what happens to you.

  • Roy Martin

    I’d sure like to know the name if her attorney. I’d put him on the “Stay Away-Dumb As Rocks” list.

  • Dkasp

    Idiot.

  • Barry

    I think she should sue the California Highway Patrol for allowing traffic, knowing that Trump’s election would cause protests that might spill onto major roads. Oh, and sue Gov Brown, just for sh ts and giggles.

  • Slammy

    In Alabama this would be called assumption of the risk.

  • BaconLovingInfidel

    Darwin is saddened by her survival and recovery. Her emergency care should’ve included sterilization.

  • ssgtflo

    I didn’t know that you can major as a Speed Bump at UC San Diego.

  • Robert Taylor

    Thanks to the driver that gave these idiot protestors something to think about!!!!!!!!!!

  • Rezqewr

    Hopefully whilst her pelvis was being crushed, her uterus and ovaries were damaged beyond serviceable limits. Stupid people should not be able to reproduce.

  • Rumpledrumskin Hawes

    If this doesn’t prove a need for safe spaces !

    • billyjimjr

      JWJ, did you see the comment “So this is what feminist intersectionality is all about”. 🙂

  • Harleyrose

    Perfect! The only better news would be is if Ms. Flores is an illegal with the Full Free Ride!
