HOUSTON — A Kentucky couple is suing a group of energy companies alleging, they were injured due to a massive pipeline explosion that occurred near their home.
Joanna Coulter and Denver Coulter filed a complaint Aug. 15 in Harris County District Court against Texas Eastern Transmission LP, Spectra Energy Transmission Resources LLC, Spectra Energy Transmission Services LLC, Spectra Energy Corp. and Enbridge (U.S.) Inc., alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the Coulters were severely injured Aug. 1, due to a gas leak and huge explosion that occurred near their Kentucky home. The suit states flames shot hundreds of feet into the air and the explosion was due to faulty pipelines that the defendants had failed to ensure were operating properly.
