Where a man who worked for a car rental company brought claims for negligence and reckless conduct against his co-worker after she hit him as she drove out of a car wash, summary judgment for the co-worker is reversed and remanded because the co-worker’s making of a prohibited left turn and her failure to stop at a stop sign, failure to look, honk or signal was reckless conduct that constituted affirmative acts sufficient to establish co-worker liability.
Judgment is reversed and remanded.
