Motiva Enterprising is being sued for not better managing traffic and preventing a rear-end collision.

Diedric Gonzales filed suit against Eugene Albritton, Tammi Todd and Motiva on April 5 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, on Sept. 23 Gonzales was a passenger in a vehicle traveling on State Highway 73. The vehicle slowed due to traffic congestion being directed by Motiva when Albritton rear-ended the car. Albritton was rear-ended by Todd.

The suit accuses Motiva of negligently failing to manage traffic and accuses the defendant drivers of failing to keep a proper lookout and maintain control of their 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.

Adam Terrell of Weller, Green, Toups and Terrell in Beaumont will be representing her.

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

Case No. A192-274
