Orange County resident Melvin Price is suing the city of Beaumont, alleging a city employee struck his vehicle two years ago.

The suit was filed Jan. 5 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, on Jan. 10, 2010, Price was stopped for traffic at the intersection of Washington Boulevard and Irving Street in Beaumont when Clifton Jackson, who was in the course and scope of his employment with the city, struck him.

The suit alleges Jackson, while in his employment with the city, breached his duty to keep a proper lookout.

The plaintiff is suing for his alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages, plus all court costs.

Beaumont attorney Jeffrey Chilton of Packard Lapray represents him.

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

Case No. A191-618
