Two local attorneys have filed a federal multi-count personal injury lawsuit against a driver for Gore Volunteer Fire Company in Frederick County.
The lawsuit was filed on behalf of the client and victim Robert Davis.
According to the lawsuit, Joshua Bryson, who volunteers at Gore Fire Company, entered onto a busy Route 50 without his lights and siren activated, failed to yield the right of way and caused Davis to unavoidably collide with the ambulance Bryson was driving.
The suit states that Bryson then attempted to cover-up the circumstances.
“The man was criminally charged, and he faced up to a year in jail and up to a $2,500 fine based on the accusations of that driver, who by the way, the complaint alleges did not render any assistance or care for Mr. Davis as he was required to do,” said Beau Correll, Attorney, Correll Law Firm.
Correll said the collision caused severe, lasting injuries including nerve damage and debilitating pain.
