Three days before Bobbi Kristina Brown was found unresponsive in her home’s bathtub, she was involved in an automobile accident that left one Georgia man severely injured.
Now the motorist has filed a lawsuit against Bobbi Kristina through her guardians.
Russell Eckerman is seeking $730,000 in medical bills and damages.
According to the suit, Bobbi Kristina was speeding and tailgating another vehicle before losing control and colliding with Russell’s Ford Taurus.
“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 claims. “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.”
Russell, who claims to have suffered facial, skull and spinal fractures, is also suing the Ford Motor Company, alleging that his airbag failed to deploy.
According to a New York Daily News report, Bobbi Kristina lost control when her vehicle blew a right tire.
