Judge Dismisses Lawsuit From College Student Hit By Car While Protesting Trump On Freeway
On election night in 2016, a California college student was hit by a car while protesting Trump on a highway.
She ultimately tried to sue the school and others for not stopping the protest.
It has now been reported that a judge has dismissed her lawsuit.

Court dismisses lawsuit filed by student hit by vehicle during anti-Trump freeway protest
A judge has tossed out a personal injury lawsuit filed by a young woman who sued UC San Diego and others after she was hit by a vehicle as she protested the election of Donald Trump in the middle of a busy San Diego freeway.
The San Diego Superior Court has issued a notice of dismissal against Maria Ana Carrola Flores’ case, according to court documents obtained by The College Fix.
Flores, reportedly a UCSD student at the time of the November 2016 incident, partly blamed campus officials in her lawsuit, alleging Resident Advisors had effectively organized the protest by encouraging it, therefore campus officials shared responsibility for her injuries.
Her case was officially dismissed without prejudice on May 26, court documents show.
Reached for comment, her attorney Jerold Sullivan told The College Fix that the outcome was “a tragedy” and that the case will not be refiled.
“The person that ran her over did not have insurance and is judgement proof with no assets. Ms. Flores is left with no recourse for catastrophic physical injuries and a lifetime of medical expenses,” he said.
UCSD declined to comment to The College Fix.
Here’s a video of the incident:
This young woman made a horrible choice and now she is paying for it.
It just goes to show how out of control the anti-Trump hysteria on the left became after the election.
It’s probably going to be worse in 2020.
