Kent School cleared of negligence for 2016 bike crash

Kent School has been cleared of negligence by a jury for a bike crash that severely injured a now former student.  The Newstimes reports that Danilo Bracho was in a coma for at least two months, underwent more than 20 surgeries, and sustained serious, long-term injuries in the 2016 accident.  His family filed a federal lawsuit against the school after her son crashed into a tree during a school-sponsored bike ride.  The private prep school required all students to enroll in an outdoor activity, and Bracho did not have his own bike and helmet as required for the activity, but was loaned a bike.  He failed to navigate a tight curve midway down a steep hill on Bulls Bridge Road.
