Municipality held not liable when student killed at allegedly dangerous bus stop

A federal judge in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania decided that a municipality will not be held liable for the death of a student who was killed by a vehicle as he crossed a road to reach his bus stop.  In the case of Estate of Viola v. Township of Bensalem, a student was killed when he attempted to cross a busy intersection to wait for his school bus.  At the time of the accident the intersection's pedestrian crossing signal button was broken.  Unfortunately, the intersection was not manned with a crossing guard at the hour of the death.
