A lawsuit has been filed by an East Texas woman against Austin A. McWhorter, Lon McWhorter and Mac’s Carnival and Attractions after a trailer carrying carnival equipment detached from its Ford truck and hit her vehicle on May 14, 2009.
The woman was a passenger in a 2008 Dodge Ram when the incident happened. The lawsuit alleges the defendants were negligent in failing to use safety chains, failing to control the vehicle and for entrusting the truck to an unlicensed, incompetent or reckless driver, among other things.
Damages for medical expenses, physical pain and suffering, mental anguish, disfigurement, loss of earning capacity, interest and court costs are being sought by the plaintiff.
