CHARLESTON – A Scott Depot man who was injured when his Jeep was rear-ended by a pickup owned by Molemaster is suing the company and its employee.
Harold Morris filed a complaint in Putnam Circuit Court against Noah Wesley Thomas and Molemaster Services Corp. alleging negligent and reckless misconduct.
The suit states Morris was driving his Jeep Wrangler on Interstate 64 in Nitro on Sept. 9, 2017, when a pickup truck driven by Thomas and owned by Molemaster rear-ended his vehicle, causing him to sustain injuries. Thomas was citing for following too closely, according to the suit.
"Defendant Thomas operated the vehicle in a negligent and reckless manner and failed to maintain control of the vehicle proximately resulting in the collision with plaintiff's vehicle," Morris alleges in his suit.
Morris seeks monetary relief, punitive damages, trial by jury and all other just relief. He is represented by Dan R. Snuffer and Patrick Salango of Preston & Salango PLLC in Charleston.
