PINEVILLE – An Apple Grove man is suing Thunder Mountain Speedway after he claims he was injured while attending an event at the speedway.
On July 13, 2013, Rocky Estep was a public invitee of the speedway when he suffered a severe injury when a motor vehicle participating in a motor sport event left the race track and struck him, according to a complaint filed in Wyoming Circuit Court.
Estep claims he was a public bystander at the event and that the speedway was negligent in its design and lacked the necessary safety features to make the premises safe for persons such as him.
As a result of the defendant's negligence, Estep was severely and seriously injured and was rendered sick, sore, lame and otherwise disabled, according to the suit.
Estep claims the injury caused or contributed to cause an aggravation of a previously existing defect or infirmity.
The plaintiff suffered great pain and anguish of body and mind and his injuries are permanent in nature, according to the suit.
Estep claims because of his injuries, he was forced to undergo painful and extensive medical care and treatment and incurred medical bills and expenses.
Estep is seeking compensatory damages. He is being represented by R. Matthew Vital of Vital & Vital.
