A Beaumont man has filed suit against the driver who he claims failed to yield the right-of-way, causing a collision.

John Mc Zeal Jr. claims he was driving on Proctor Street in Port Arthur on Aug. 14 when defendant Keosha Pitre ran into him.

Because of the collision, Mc Zeal incurred medical costs, lost wages and his earning capacity and experienced mental anguish, physical pain, suffering and physical impairment, according to the complaint filed May 12 in Jefferson County District Court.

Pitre negligently drove too fast, failed to yield the right-of-way, failed to keep a proper lookout and failed to stay in her lane, the suit states.

In his complaint, Mc Zeal is seeking an unspecified judgment, plus costs, pre- and post-judgment interest at the maximum rate allowed by law and other relief to which he may be entitled.

Clay Dugas and Mike Jacobellis of Clay Dugas and Associates in Beaumont will be representing him.

The case has been assigned to Judge Bob Wortham, 58th District Court.

Case No. A189-996
