Georgia Tech Student Sues Over Fall from ‘Ramblin’ Wreck’

July 13, 2010

A Georgia Tech student is suing the school and a Cobb County metal fabricator after he suffered injuries when a hand rail broke and he fell off Tech’s iconic car, the Ramblin’ Wreck.

Nicholas Brown’s suit, filed in Fulton Superior Court, names Tech, the company and the state of Georgia as defendants. It accuses the school of “promoting the unsafe use of a vehicle by students.”

Brown, a member of the Ramblin’ Reck Club, a student group that cares for the iconic 1930 Ford Model A Sports Coupe, was standing on the passenger-side running board as the car was being driven on April 16, 2009 when the railing broke. Brown’s suit says he was hospitalized for four days with a head injury. The suit does not ask for specific damages.
