A woman has filed suit against the driver who she claims proceeded straight through an intersection after sitting in a turn-only lane.
Teria Lynn claims she was driving on Highway 105 in Beaumont on June 21, 2008, when defendant Charla Pate drove straight from a turn-only lane and slammed into her vehicle.
Because of the collision, Lynn incurred medical costs, lost her earnings and her earning capacity, suffered physical impairment and physical pain and sustained mental anguish, according to the complaint filed May 17 in Jefferson County District Court. In addition, she incurred property damages, the suit states.
Lynn blames Pate for causing the collision, saying Pate negligently failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to timely apply her brakes to avoid a collision and failed to move from a lane of traffic only when that move could safely be made.
Lynn is seeking an unspecified judgment, plus interest, costs and other relief the court deems just.
She will be represented by Jonathan C. Juhan of Beaumont.
The case has been assigned to Judge Gary Sanderson, 60th District Court.
