Two Oklahoma residents allege they incurred nearly $50,000 worth of medical costs after their car landed upside down in the center median.
Tony T. Nguyen and Nancy T. Doan allege they were driving east on Interstate Highway 30 near mile marker 155 in Titus County on Oct. 3, 2012, when defendant James Lowell McElveen, who was driving for defendant Transportation Services, rear-ended their vehicle.
"As a result of being rear-ended, the vehicle operated by Tony Nguyen and occupied by Nancy Doan was projected forward, flipped and landed upside down in the center median," the suit states.
Due to the collision, Tony Nguyen incurred medical costs of $26,000 while Nancy Doan incurred costs of $18,000, according to the complaint filed Aug. 27 in the Texarkana Division of the Eastern District of Texas.
Both plaintiffs also suffered multiple lacerations, endured mental anguish and physical pain and lost income, the complaint says.
In their complaint, the plaintiffs seek a judgment of more than $75,000, plus costs and other relief the court deems just.
J.P. Longacre, of Idabel, will represent them.
