PUBLIC RECORD September 15, 2014

5/20/2013 12:19:00 PM
Automobile accidents at the center of new civil suits

Carol Vance has filed suit against Kara Williams, 275 N St Hwy 3, NV and the Western Reserve Mutual Casualty Company concerning a wreck at 9:45 p.m. on Sept. 3, 2012.
On that night, Vance was operating a Geo northbound on State Rd 3 & 7 in Vernon. Williams was southbound in a Chevrolet and allegedly operating in "such a negligent and intoxicated manner that it went left of center and collided into the Geo."
The suit claims Williams had a duty to exercise reasonable and ordinary care in the operation of her vehicle and to obey traffic rules and that some or all of Williams' negligent acts or omissions "were violations of statutes or ordinances for which there was no excuse or justification."
As a result, Vance is asking for a judgment to compensate her for her physical and emotional injuries, physical pain and mental suffering as well as for expenses she has incurred.
The plaintiff also seeks punitive damages in an amount sufficient to deter Kara Williams and others from like conduct in the future.
She is asking for a jury trial.
Kelsie Ashpaugh is suing Helen Thompson, 1367 Magnolia Pl, NV and is asking for a jury to rule on her claim.
On Oct. 4, 2012, at 7:55 p.m. Ashpaugh was driving an Olds south on Country Squire Blvd. as Thompson was driving north.
The suit claims that Thompson operated in "such a negligent and intoxicated manner" that her car collided with Ashpaugh's.
Because "some or all" of her negligent acts were in violation of state law, Ashpaugh is also seeking punitive damages and wants the jury to determine what is due for damages she has incurred.
