This case comes to us on appeal from a judgment of $38,762.50 for plaintiff Marlene Barretto, a 16-year-old girl at the time of the accident, and $1,000 in favor of her parents, plaintiffs Manuel and Winifred Barretto. The suit was the result of an auto accident on October 3, 1965 in which the defendant, Stanley Akau, caused a head-on collision with another car while driving the car of Gerald Ito in which both Ito and plaintiff Marlene were also riding. The defendant admits negligence. The only issues at trial were the extent of damages to be awarded to Marlene, the expenses incurred by her parents, and the affirmative defenses of assumption of risk and contributory negligence.
