Meltasha Moore filed a lawsuit March 18 in Jefferson County District Court against Miguel Molina of Groves, alleging several counts of negligence in an automobile collision.
According to the complaint, on Dec. 19, 2014, Moore was driving southbound in the outside lane of the 5500 block of U.S. 69 and when she stopped for traffic, Molina’s vehicle struck her from behind.
