MOUNDSVILLE – A Wheeling family is suing a Pennsylvania company claiming that its driver caused a traffic accident.

Bruce, Toni and Tyler Cooey together filed a lawsuit Sept. 3 in Marshall Circuit Court against Ridge Runners Well Services Inc. and Thomas L. McIntosh, claiming McIntosh's negligence while driving a company truck caused a traffic accident.

In the lawsuit, the Cooeys claim that Tyler Cooey was traveling generally north on Number 2 Ridge on June 20 when a Peterbilt truck, operated by McIntosh traveling in a southerly direction, rounded a turn and the truck's rear wheels crossed the center line, forcing Cooey to hit the rear of the truck. The Cooeys claim it was McIntosh's negligence that caused the accident, and that the recklessness of the defendants contributed to the total loss of their vehicle.

The Cooeys are seeking compensatory damages, punitive damages, attorney fees, litigation expenses, court costs, pre- and post-judgment interest as well as any further relief that may be available. The family is represented by Ronald Wm Kasserman of Kasserman Law Offices PLLC. in Wheeling.

Marshall Circuit Court case number 15-C-15OK
