Woman sues Kentucky trucking company after I-265 crash in July

A woman is suing a Kentucky trucking company for their involvement in a crash on I-265 in July that shut down all lanes of the Gene Snyder Freeway.

Sammy Wooten Trucking LLC owned the tractor-trailer truck that caused the crash, according to the lawsuit filed in Jefferson County Circuit Court Friday. The plaintiff, Victoria Carney, claims she suffered "catastrophic injuries" July 27.

The semi-truck was traveling southbound on the Gene Snyder near Old Henry Road when it crossed over a cable barrier and into the northbound lane, police said at the time. It reportedly crashed into four cars.

The driver, acting as an employee or independent contractor for the trucking company, "negligently and grossly negligently operated" the truck, the lawsuit reads.

Carney's attorney, Ron Hillerich, said that his client was transported by helicopter following the July 27 crash.

According to the suit, Carney sustained "severe and disabling injuries in and about various parts of her body, both internally and externally."

Hillerich wrote in an email Friday that Carney suffered two broken legs, a broken left arm, elbow fractures, rib fractures and a left corneal injury. She has undergone multiple surgeries, he said.

The lawsuit seeks monetary compensation for the plaintiff's pain, suffering, medical expenses and lost wages.

A voicemail left for Sammy Wooten Trucking was not immediately returned Friday night.
