A Beaumont woman is suing a Beaumont man over claims of negligence following a vehicle collision on West Lucas Jefferson County.

Grace Josephine Woytek filed a complaint Sept. 11 in Jefferson County District Court against John Marty Ryan, alleging negligence and malice.

According to the complaint, on Sept. 26, 2013, Woytek was traveling west in the 2500 block of West Lucas when Ryan's vehicle struck her vehicle from behind.

The complaint states Ryan was negligent in his failure to keep proper lookout, apply his brakes, keep proper control of the vehicle, and for speeding.

As a result of the collision, Woytek has sustained permanent bodily impairment, physical pain and mental anguish, scarring, loss of earnings and earning capacity, and has incurred medical expenses.

Woytek seeks monetary relief of more than $50,000, plus costs of the suit. She is represented by Stephen N. Williams of Columbus, Texas.
