Orange resident Gregory Kumm has filed suit against Port Neches local David James, alleging he struck his vehicle head on a few weeks ago.
The suit was filed Feb. 14 in Jefferson County District Court.

The plaintiff is suing for his alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment, disfigurement and lost wages, plus all court costs.
Beaumont attorney Clay Dugas represents him.
Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, has been assigned to the case.
