Jury selection began Tuesday in the trial of an automobile collision lawsuit.

As previously reported, Danny Oliver filed suit against Glen Oliver on Dec. 8, 2010, in Jefferson County District Court for allegedly causing an automobile collision. 

Nearly three year later, jury selection began on Nov. 5 in Judge Bob Wortham’s 58th District Court.

According to the plaintiff’s amended petition, on Dec. 15, 2009, Glen Oliver “negligently and carelessly” collided his vehicle into Danny Oliver’s vehicle.

The suit says the collision took place at Highway 27 in Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana.

The suit accuses Glen Oliver of negligently failing to keep a proper lookout, control his speed and apply his brakes in a timely manner.

Danny Oliver is suing for his alleged past and future mental anguish, impairment, lost wages and medical expenses.

Orange attorney Sandee Hart represents him.

Glen Oliver is represented by Germer Gertz attorney Collin Shellenberger.

Case No. A188-934
