A Georgia man has sued Bobbi Kristina Brown for a January car wreck that left him seriously injured, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
Russell J. Eckerman has filed the suit through her guardians, her father Bobby Brown and aunt Pat Houston, and her conservator Bedelia Hargrove. The legal action comes as Bobbi Kristina remains in hospice from her Jan. 31 medical emergency.
The wreck occurred on Jan. 27-- just days before Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in a bathtub -- when Eckerman says her Jeep Liberty collided with his Ford Taurus in north Fulton County. Court documents state he suffered "serious personal injury."
"Defendant Brown was traveling at an imprudent speed for conditions and was following too closely and improperly attempted to change lanes in order to avoid the vehicle stopping in front of her," the lawsuit states. "Defendant Brown lost control of the vehicle she was operating crossed the center line and collided with Plaintiff’s vehicle causing extensive damage to Plaintiff’s vehicle and serious personal injury to Plaintiff."
Eckerman is seeking $730,000 for his injuries and medical bills.
He has also named the Jeep's owner and the Ford Motor Company as defendants, alleging the owner didn't properly maintain the vehicle and claiming the airbags and seatbelt of his Ford Taurus didn't deploy properly.
