WINFIELD -- A Galloway, Ohio, man is suing an individual he claims wrecked the car in which he was a passenger.
On March 6, 2010, William L. Adkins was a passenger in a vehicle being driven by Bobby Lee Guy, who was operating his vehicle in a westerly direction along Route 64 near Nitro, according to a complaint filed Feb. 28 in Putnam Circuit Court.
Adkins claims while Guy was driving, he swerved to miss a dead deer lying in the roadway and struck the median, causing Adkins to sustain injuries.
Guy failed to maintain property control of the vehicle and failed to take the necessary measures to avoid the collision, according to the suit.
Adkins claims Guy also disregarded and violated traffic and safety laws with his actions.
Guy's negligence caused Adkins to sustain injuries that were permanent in nature, according to the suit.
Adkins is seeking compensatory damages. He is being represented by C. Richard Wilson.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Phillip Stowers.
