A driver and the passengers in her vehicle have filed a suit for injuries they received in an automobile collision.

Lakisha Simpson, Mary Chretien and Gloria Jones filed suit against David Carrillo-Canales and Martin Salazar on March 20 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, on Jan. 29 Simpson was driving a 2011 Toyota Camry with Chretien and Jones as her passengers. They were traveling west on SH 87 and had stopped at a red light at 9th Avenue when Carrillo-Canales rear-ended them.

After the incident, Carrillo-Canales was arrested and charges with driving while intoxicated, the suit states.

The suit faults Salazar with negligent entrustment.

The plaintiffs are suing for their alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages, plus all court costs.

Port Arthur attorney Langston Adams represents them.

Judge Gary Sanderson, 6oth District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. B192-195
