PHILIPPI — A Barbour County woman is suing a senior center and a driver, alleging negligence in causing a vehicle crash.
Sandra K. Grow filed a complaint in Barbour Circuit Court against Barbour County Senior Center Inc., and Robert E. Baughman, alleging failure to exercise standard care and skill in the operation of a vehicle.
According to the complaint, on Oct. 27, 2016, Grow was a front seat passenger in a vehicle lawfully operated by a third party and traveling southbound on U.S. Route 250. The suit says Baughman negligently operated a 2014 Ford van while working for the Barbour County Senior Center, causing it to violently impact the passenger side of the vehicle occupied by the plaintiff.
As a result, Grow says she sustained injuries to various areas of her body, incurred medical bills, suffered physical pain, mental anguish, inconvenience and was hindered in her ability to enjoy life.
The plaintiff alleges Barbour County Senior Center and Baughman failed to observe other motorists on the road, and failed to yield the right of way to oncoming traffic.
Grow seeks trial by jury, compensatory damages, interest, attorney's fees, costs of action and all further just relief. She is represented by attorney William T. Nestor of Elkins.
