A company claims it sustained property damages after a driver collided with its truck.

C & C Demo filed a lawsuit July 28 in Jefferson County District Court against Jimmy Ray Duriso and LaDonna Angelle.

In its complaint, C & C alleges its employee, Junior Ozle London, was driving a 1997 Mack truck in the 3000 block of Concord about 100 feet north of the 2400 block of Beatrice in Beaumont on March 2 when the accident occurred.

"Defendant Jimmy Ray Duriso was traveling at a high rate of speed when he struck a vehicle as he attempted to pass to the left of such vehicle thereby causing the vehicle Jimmy Ray Duriso was operating to turn sideways and collide with the vehicle Plaintiff's employee was operating," the suit states.

Because of the collision, C & C incurred property damages and lost profits, according to the complaint.

In its complaint, C & C Demo blames Duriso for causing the collision, saying he negligently failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to timely apply his brakes, passed to the left when it was not safe to do so, drove too fast and failed to turn in an attempt to avoid a collision.

In its complaint, C & C is seeking a judgment within the jurisdictional limits of Jefferson County District Court, plus pre-judgment interest at the maximum rate allowed by law, post-judgment interest at the legal rate, costs and other relief the court deems just.

A . Mark Faggard of Beaumont will be representing it.

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

Case No. A190-593
