HUNTINGTON – An Ohio woman is suing Lowe’s Home Centers Inc. after she claims its employee was responsible for a collision that caused her injuries and damages.

Alvin Phillips, an employee of Lowe’s, was also named as a defendant in the suit.

On Nov. 11, 2013, Donna M. Withers was lawfully operating her vehicle in Cabell County when Phillips negligently and carelessly operated a truck owned by Lowe’s and collided with Withers’ vehicle, according to a complaint filed in Cabell Circuit Court.
