Joseph Randall Chaput filed a lawsuit April 14 in the Marshall Division of the Eastern District of Texas against William Avery Griffin, citing negligence. 

According to the suit, on Oct. 20, 2012, Chaput was driving a tractor trailer south on U.S. Highway 271 near Border Street in Gilmer. He alleges Griffin failed to yield the right of way and drove his vehicle up under Chaput's trailer.
