My grandson is transported to and from adult day care by MATA Plus, a transportation service for the disabled. Today the driver dropped my grandson off outside the apartment, near the exit gate instead of at my apartment door. We were walking through the gate when it began to close. it knocked my grandson down and my grandson took me down. It kept closing on us. Three boys were near and ran to help us. I guess the sensor sensing more bodies is what caused it to start opening. My grandson appeared shaken and only a little bruised. I was shaken, no bruises, but I will be in lots of pain soon from holding back a 1000 lb gate with my body. Who is to blame? Me for walking through the car's exit, the driver for using an unsafe stop, or the apartment for a possible ill working gate?
