HOUSTON – A Harris County lawsuit resulting from a late 2016
vehicular accident between an 18-wheeler and a box truck along U.S. 290 which killed
a man recently grew to include original answers from the defendants and an intervenors’
original petition, local state district court records show.
Bastrop County resident Jerry Eugene Brown sued Sysco Corp.;
Sysco Louisiana Seafood, LLC; and Freedman Distributors, LLC earlier this year
in response to the Nov. 28, 2016 collision.
Brown asserts that Pascual Orozco Rueda, an employee of the
respondents, crossed into his lane and crashed into him, claiming the subject
event left him with “catastrophic” injuries.
The intervenors’ complaint, which lists Brown and Rueda’s
estate as plaintiffs, was filed last Feb. 16 on claims the accident left
Rueda-Orozco with injuries he later succumbed to at the age of 63.
The defendants, in turn, submitted formal answers to Brown’s
suit and the Rueda family’s petition.
A jury trial is requested.
