According to the complaint, the Clevengers allege that on Jan. 10, 2017, Ronald Clevenger was involved in a T-bone-style collision with the defendants' pickup truck on US Route 30 at or near its intersection with Tarkiln Road in Doddridge County. He sustained severe injuries and incurred medical expenses and other damages. Julie Clevenger loss the consortium, services and comfort of her husband.
