CHARLESTON – A pizza delivery driver alleges a motorist was intoxicated when he crossed the center line of Kanawha Terrace and struck her vehicle in 2017.

Tabitha Jesperson filed the lawsuit against Terry Michael Jarrett II, Joseph C. Weaver, individually and doing business as Weaver Insurance Agency, and West Virginia National Auto Insurance Co. in Kanawha Circuit Court over allegations of negligence and other counts.

The suit states Jesperson was a delivery driver for Pizza Hut and was driving her vehicle on Kanawha Terrace when Jarrett crashed into her vehicle and caused her injuries on Nov. 24, 2017. Jesperson claims Jarrett drove his vehicle while intoxicated, failed to maintain control of his vehicle and crossed the center line.

The plaintiff alleges she submitted a claim to West Virginia National Auto Insurance and it acknowledged that Jarrett was an underinsured motorist but denied the claim. She alleges West Virginia National Auto Insurance and the Weaver defendants were obligated to make a commercially reasonable offer of underinsured motorist coverage.

Jesperson is seeking compensatory and punitive damages. She is represented by J. Kristofer Cormany of Cormany Law in Charleston.

The case is assigned to Circuit Judge Tera Salango.
