BEAUMONT – The heir of a man who died from injuries sustained in a pedestrian-auto collision is seeking damages from the Beaumont driver.

Mary Thomas, individually and on behalf of all beneficiaries/heirs of Stephen Zachary, deceased filed a complaint on Nov. 9 in the Jefferson County District Court against Angela Sullivan alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, on Dec. 4, 2015, Zachary was a pedestrian in Beaumont when defendant allegedly failed to control the speed of her vehicle and "slammed" into him. The suit states he sustained severe injuries, resulting in his death. 

The plaintiff holds Sullivan responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to maintain a careful lookout and failed to control her speed.

The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek monetary relief of more than $100,000 but less than $200,000 and such other just and proper relief. She is represented by Jonathan C. Juhan and J.J. Bragg in Beaumont.
