According to the complaint, on April 12, 2015, Vincent T. Carte was operating a motorcycle with Shelia Carter as passenger when they collided with the Daryl Carte's Ford Ranger truck on Sunday Road in Hico. As a result, the suit says, the plaintiffs suffered physical injuries and incurred medical expenses of more than $19,500..
