Description de l’éditeur

Plaintiffs, Claude Eugene Meadows and Bernice Jenkins Meadows, filed this negligence action against defendant, Craig John Lawrence, the driver, to recover damages for injuries sustained when Lawrences car struck Mr. Meadows. Lawrence answered, alleging Mr. Meadows contributory negligence as a proximate cause of the accident. Lawrence subsequently moved for, and was granted, summary judgment. Plaintiffs appeal, arguing that genuine issues of fact exist as to whether Meadows was contributorily negligent, and whether Lawrence had the last clear chance to avoid striking Meadows. We conclude that the evidence establishes Meadows contributory negligence as a matter of law. Furthermore, as the plaintiffs failed to plead last clear chance, we do not consider that issue on the merits. We therefore affirm the trial courts entry of summary judgment.
