CHARLESTON - A Kanawha County woman says her car rolled off the back of a tow truck and struck her in a recently filed lawsuit.

Amber Anderson entered the suit Dec. 12 into Kanawha Circuit Court against T.L. Pierce, doing business as Pierce Towing, and driver Chad Reames.

It alleges that on Oct. 4, 2005, Reames attempted to load Anderson's car at the Capitol Market parking lot.

While doing so, the complaint says "the vehicle came loose halfway up the ramp due to Defendants' negligence."

It rolled back and struck her, Anderson said. She seeks compensatory damages for her injuries, which she says includes a possible fracture of a vertebra and an injury to her head.

Also, Anderson asks for compensation for pain and suffering, loss of income, medical expenses, annoyance, inconvenience and impairment of earning capacity.

Lonnie Simmons of Charleston firm Di Trapano, Barrett and DiPiero is representing Anderson.

Judge Charles King has been assigned the case.
