HOUSTON — A Missouri driver is suing a Colorado County man, alleging insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries in a car crash.

Mariah Abel filed a complaint Jan. 18 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Bryan Weise, as next friend of Caden Weise, a minor, alleging they violated their duty to exercise ordinary care while driving.

According to the complaint, on Oct. 8, 2015, Abel was operating her Toyota Corolla in a lawful manner at 2300 block of state Highway 71. The suit says Caden Weise suddenly struck the front quarter panel of Abel's vehicle as Weise exited a private drive. As a result, the lawsuit states, Abel suffered physical injuries, mental anguish and incurred medical expenses. 

The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to exercise ordinary care of their vehicle, failed to yield the right-of-way, failed to apply the brakes and posed an extreme degree of risk and potential harm to others.

Abel seeks trial by jury, monetary relief between $200,000 and $1 million, and all other equitable relief. She is represented by attorneys Thomas J. Henry and George A DeVera of Law Offices of Thomas J. Henry in Corpus Christi.
