Natalie Paige Cochran filed a lawsuit March 29 in Raleigh Circuit Court against James W. Young Jr. and Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp., alleging negligence and personal injury liability.
According to the complaint, Cochran was driving her GMC Yukon SUV in a parking lot on March 17 when a 2015 Chevy Malibu, driven by Young and owned by Merck Sharp & Dohme, struck and substantially damaged her vehicle.
