Sheriff’s Deputy Seeks $1 Million in Damages After Being Struck by Box Truck at Accident Scene.

A Garza County Sheriff’s Deputy has filed a lawsuit seeking $1 million from a truck driver and his trucking company after being hit by a box truck while working at the scene of an accident on a Texas highway on February 4, 2014.

The lawsuit, filed Monday, February 24, 2014, claims that Deputy Sheriff Charlie Evans was severely injured when the truck plowed into the accident scene on Interstate 84, hitting him and at least three others.  The highway was allegedly icy at the time, and Evans was dispatched to assist at the scene of a crash involving a tractor-trailer near Post, TX. As Evans and others were attempting to extract the truck driver from the cab of his vehicle, the driver of the box truck, Arnold Ukawilu of Dallas, allegedly lost control of his truck on the icy highway and slid into the center median, where he struck Evans and three others. Evans and two of the other injured were rushed to University Medical Center in Lubbock, TX, and another person, Donald Medley of Snyder, TX, was declared dead at the scene. 

Evans’s suit names as defendants Ukawilu and the company for which he drives, John Christner Trucking of Sapulpa, OK.  Evans alleges that the company and driver were grossly negligent leading up to the wreck and is seeking personal injury damages totaling more than $1 million to compensate for his pain and suffering, future physical impairment, disfigurement, and lost future earnings.

Evans is represented in the lawsuit by Glasheen, Valles & Inderman, of Lubbock.
