This examines the Indiana Supreme Court decision in Clark v. Clark which held that a son's claims for injuries sustained when he was hit by a vehicle driven by his father were not barred by the Indiana Guest Statute which provides immunity to drivers of vehicles who cause injury to persons in or upon their vehicles. In the case the trial court held that the statute barred the son's claims. On appeal, the Indiana Court of Appeals held in a split 2-1 opinion that the statute did not bar the son's claims. Upon transfer, the Indiana Supreme Court in a rare split 3-2 decision affirmed the Court of Appeals majority opinion.
