A woman has filed a personal injury suit against the person she claims was driving the vehicle that collided with the school bus on which a child rode.
Rachel Rigmaiden, on behalf of minor Charmae Ceasar, filed suit in Texas’ Jefferson County District Court on July 9, claiming that defendant David Median, driving a vehicle owned by co-defendant Maria Felix, failed to yield the right-of-way at a stop sign and collided with a Beaumont Independent School district bus on which Ceasar was riding on September 22, 2009.
The suit claims the collision caused Ceasar to incur medical expenses and experience physical pain, mental anguish, disfigurement, and physical impairment.
The suit alleges negligence on the part of Medina for failure to maintain a proper lookout, failure to maintain proper control of his vehicle, failure to maintain his vehicle in the proper lane, driving too fast, and failure to yield the right-of-way. The suit claims Felix was negligent for entrusting her vehicle to an incompetent and unfit driver.
The plaintiffs are seeking actual and exemplary damages.
