LOVINGTON, N.M. - The family of a 17-year-old Lovington High School student who died after falling off of a moving vehicle on campus is suing the school district.
A federal wrongful death lawsuit was filed Wednesday accusing the school district and administrators of neglect.
The lawsuit says the school district knew about dangerous conditions in the parking lot and did nothing about them.
It also mentioned that the school did not have security officers in the parking lot.
The family is seeking more than $2.5 million in damages.
