Illegal left turn results in suit
Port Arthur local Arline Chenier Ned is suing Houston resident Anita Sanchez for allegedly making an illegal left turn and striking her vehicle.
The suit was filed April 25 in Jefferson County District Court.
Court records show that on July 11, 2009, Ned was turning left onto Dowlen Road in Beaumont from the outside lane when Sanchez turned left from the inside lane and struck her vehicle.
In her suit, Ned accuses Sanchez of negligently failing to keep a proper lookout and failing to maintain a safe distance between vehicles.
The plaintiff is suing for her alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages, plus all court costs.
Port Arthur attorney Langston Adams represents her.
Judge Gary Sanderson, 6oth District Court, has been assigned to the case.
Case No. B189-825
