DC School Sued By Mother of Late Child Paralyzed After Car Crash


A DC woman has filed a lawsuit against KIPP DC Public Charter School, demanding $50 million in restitution, after her son was hit by a car outside the school.

Kaidyn Green, the nine-year-old, was severely injured on December 10, 2021, after he was hit by a car near the 3300 block of Wheeler Road, as he left KIPP DC Honor Academy, where he was a fourth grader. 

He was left paralyzed from the neck down following the accident, and passed away on June 2 this year, according to his family.

On Friday, Keith Watters, a lawyer representing the family, held a press conference, during which he accused KIPP DC of being negligent for violating the regular protocol to get the child to the front desk, while his mother was waiting there. 

The family also sued the charter school system, LGC Security, which the school works with, in addition to the owner of the car involved in the accident. 

Speaking to WUSA9, Kaidyn’s aunt, Charisma Green, said that it has been a life-changing experience for her family. Kaidyn was “an energetic and fun-loving boy that loved school,” according to her. “We don’t want anyone to go through this again,” she said. 

“Our community continues to mourn Kaidyn’s passing and our thoughts are with his family and the classmates that knew him so well,” KIPP DC said in a release. “Given the pending legal matter, we’re unable to say more at this time.”
