On May 30, Tennessee resident Lane Gamlin was traveling in Harrison County, Texas as a passenger in his co-worker’s car. They were on Interstate 20 when a truck crashed into them, according to a recent lawsuit.
The lawsuit says that an approaching tractor-trailer driven by Gregory Kunze and owned by Con-Way Freight veered into the opposite lane and rolled over. Gamlin’s car did not have time to react and crashed into the truck.
The lawsuit accuses both the driver and the trucking company of negligence that led to the car and truck accident. Charges against the driver include:
- Operating his vehicle in an unsafe manner
- Driving at unsafe speeds
- Failing to keep a safe distance from other vehicles
- Failing to stay within a single lane
The trucking company stands accused of:
- Employing an unsafe driver
- Failing to adequately train its drivers
Gamlin is seeking a number of damages, including compensation for medical bills, lost wages, loss of enjoyment of life, physical pain, physical disfigurement and others.
