A local insurance company is suing a driver who ran into a parked car owned by one of its policyholders.
South County Mutual Insurance Co., on behalf of policyholder Mary Brown, filed a lawsuit June 9 in the Jefferson County District Court against Cyrus Arion and Robert Frazier, citing negligence.
The plaintiff claims Brown's vehicle was legally parked on the 1600 block of Regent Street on Aug. 1, 2012, when her vehicle was hit by defendant Arion.
The suit alleges Arion lost control of the vehicle he was driving, owned by Frazier, and collided with Brown's vehicle, causing damage.
According to the suit, Arion failed to keep a lookout, failed to drive his vehicle in the lane of traffic, failed to apply his brakes and was driving with no driver's license.
The plaintiff states Brown's vehicle sustained damages in an amount of $9,022.17, which was paid in part by the plaintiff.
The plaintiff is seeking damages in excess of jurisdictional minimum, interest and court costs.
It is being represented in the case by Dallas attorney Richard Anderson of Anderson Burns & Vela LLP.
