HOUSTON — Adesa Houston faces a suit from a Harris County man who alleges one of the defendant's employees ran over his foot at an auto auction.
Irvin Castillo filed a complaint Nov. 27 in Harris County District Court against Adesa Texas Inc., doing business as Adesa Houston, alleging negligence.
Castillo was attending a car auction Oct. 17, 2018 at Adesa's North Sam Houston Parkway site, according to his complaint. He alleges that as he was looking over one of the vehicles for a potential bid, one of Adesa's employees drove over his left foot. Castillo says he sustained injuries, pain and suffering, mental anguish and medical expenses.
The plaintiff alleges the defendant's driver failed to make sure attendees were clear before moving the car.
