Appellant brought suit against the appellees, Robinson Printers, Inc., and Asher Dewinsky, seeking damages for injuries sustained as a result of being struck by an automobile which was owned by Robinson and operated by Dewinsky. Summary judgment was entered for Robinson and this appeal followed.
Both the appellant, Fry, and the appellee, Dewinsky, were employees of Kacar Standard Station in Maitland. The automobile of Robinson had been left at the service station for minor repairs and servicing. At the time of the accident, Dewinsky was driving the automobile onto a "lift" or "grease rack" and Fry was standing at the end of the "lift," guiding Dewinsky in placing the automobile on it. Upon signal from Fry to stop, Dewinsky says he put his foot on the brake but that it slipped off and hit the "gas pedal." This caused the automobile to lurch forward, jump the safety barrier on the lift, and strike Fry, pinning him against some oil cans.
The appellant has failed to demonstrate error and the judgment is affirmed.
KANNER, Acting C.J., and SHANNON, J., and McNATT, JOHN M., Associate Judge, concur.
