A Jefferson County man is suing over claims he was injured in a collision on College Street.
Derrick Calloway filed a lawsuit Oct. 14 in Jefferson County District Court against John Wayne Arnold Jr., citing negligence.
According to the complaint, Calloway was driving on College Street in Beaumont on Sept. 10, 2013, when Arnold failed to yield to oncoming traffic, made an unprotected left turn and struck the driver’s side of Calloway’s vehicle. The complaint states the collision forced the plaintiff’s car into a light pole and a parked vehicle.
Calloway says he sustained severe injuries, which he still suffers from. Arnold is accused of negligence in failing to keep a proper lookout and yield right of way to oncoming traffic.
Calloway seeks damages including medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, interest and costs of suit.
