Wreck between pickups leads to lawsuit

GALVESTON - Houston resident Guillermo Hernandez claims he was involved in a two-vehicle accident with Seabrook local Mohammad Ahmad Alyasin in northwest Houston.

A lawsuit filed July 12 in Galveston County District Court says Alyasin collided with Hernandez at the intersection of Smiling Wood Lane and North Houston Rosslyn Road on Nov. 29, 2010.

Hernandez states that he was driving his red 1991 Nissan pickup truck eastbound in the 7200 block of Smiling Wood and was approaching North Houston Rosslyn when the incident in question occurred.

Alyasin, who drove a 1999 Ford F-250 pickup truck belonging to Analytic Stress Relieving Inc., was traveling westbound on Smiling Wood and turned south on North Houston Rosslyn only to hit the complainant's vehicle, the original petition says.

The plaintiff states both motorists had a green light, but insists Alyasin "attempted a wide left turn at the same intersection and violently struck the plaintiff's vehicle."

Alyasin's employer is also a respondent in the suit since it reportedly entrusted one of its vehicles to him.

The company is blamed for failing to properly train Alyasin as well as failing to properly inspect and maintain the subject truck.

Consequently, the plaintiff seeks unspecified monetary damages.

Attorney Thomas F. Bickham Jr. with Bickham Law in Houston is representing Hernandez, and Galveston County 122nd District Court Judge John Ellisor is presiding over the case.

Case No. 12-cv-1498
