Disney World sued after college athlete gets run over by scooter: 'Great pain and anguish'
A college athlete sued Disney World for injuries he allegedly suffered in the park in 2018.
David Maynard filed a lawsuit alleging that a minor accident caused by another park visitor resulted in him missing out on college basketball for a full season. It is not clear which college Maynard is playing for.

According to the lawsuit, a guest hit Maynard from behind on a scooter somewhere in Hollywood Studios. The accident apparently separated 99 percent of his left Achilles tendon, resulting in Maynard having surgery and physical rehabilitation for months.
"Maynard has suffered great pain and anguish for the body and mind," the lawsuit said.
Maynard claims that it is the park's responsibility because scooters are allowed to drive within the crowd of pedestrians instead of having their own designated lanes. He also claimed that Disney World does not train guests on how to use the scooters safely.
Disney didn't say much about the lawsuit, but described the pending lawsuit at the Orlando Sentinel as "a matter ... between two guests."
The Sentinel also reports that this is the fourth lawsuit against Disney World related to scooters. Scooters are protected under the same regulations as wheelchairs and can neither be banned nor restricted by Disney who may drive them.
Maynard is seeking compensation of $ 30,000.
