HUNTINGTON – Barboza Produce is facing a lawsuit by a Kentucky woman who alleges she was injured when an employee struck her vehicle from behind on a Kentucky highway.
Andrea Hurley filed a complaint in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia Huntington Division against Barboza Produce LLC and Brogan Burgess alleging negligence.
Hurley was traveling on U.S. 23 on Sept. 27, 2017, when Barboza Produce's vehicle driven by Burgess hit the back of Hurley's vehicle and she sustained serious injuries, according to her complaint. She alleges Burgess failed to observe her superior right-of-way.
U.S. 23 does not run through West Virginia, but Barboza is based in Huntington and Burgess lives in West Virginia. The accident occurred in Kentucky.
Hurley seeks compensatory damages, a trial by jury and all other relief the court deems just and proper. She is represented by Kyle Salyer of Morgan, Collins, Yeast & Salyer in Paintsville, Kentucky.
