HOUSTON – An alleged collision between a locomotive and a cement mixer truck last year has resulted in a lawsuit.
The locomotive’s engineer, Jack Hill, initiated legal action against R.S. Concrete, Inc.; R.S. Concrete Pumping Services, LLC; and Angel Rodriguez Alvarado in response to the subject accident on Oct. 9 in the Harris County 152nd District Court.
According to court papers, Hill was transporting military equipment from Beaumont to Fort Carson, Colo. on or around Nov. 9, 2017 when Alvarado, who was driving the cement mixer truck for R.S. Concrete, failed to stop and yield the right of way at a railroad crossing.
The train purportedly struck the vehicle and caused the plaintiff to suffer multiple injuries.
Consequently, Hill seeks unspecified monetary damages.
He is represented by Clint E. McGuire of the law firm Martinez & McGuire PLLC in Houston.
