A Galveston County man allegedly hurt in a crash is suing the Pasadena driver he says is responsible. 

Juan Sanchez filed the negligence claim against Fernando Baeza on Aug. 20 in Galveston County District Court. 

The incident happened Dec. 18, 2013. According to the lawsuit, Sanchez was a passenger in a 1999 Jeep Cherokee on U.S. Interstate 45 North service road. Sanchez says Baeza was driving a 1997 Toyota Camry on the I-45 N service road, failed to control his speed and caused a collision. Sanchez says he was seriously injured in the crash. 

Sanchez is asking for an unspecified amount of money in damages for medical expenses, physical pain and mental anguish, past and future physical impairment, lost wages and future lost wage-earning capacity.
