Former Fox 5 anchor Amanda Davis was sued this week in Fulton County Superior Court by the driver she hit in a wrong-way accident last November.
Davis at the time was arrested on charges of DUI, failure to maintain lane and reckless driving.
David Jarman, in the lawsuit, is requesting payment for past medical expenses of $76,109 plus future related medical expenses. He wants monies related to lost wages and mental and physical pain and suffering as well as punitive damages.
The lawsuit was boiler plate and provided no details about Jarman’s employment or the nature of his injuries.
Jarman’s attorneys were unavailable for comment. William Head, Davis’ attorney, hasn’t responded to an email requesting an update on her criminal case.
Davis was driving northbound in the southbound lane of Piedmont Avenue near 14th Street in Midtown around 12:20 a.m. when the crash ocurred, according to Atlanta police spokesman Gregory Lyon.
When the investigating officer arrived on the scene, he saw a black Toyota Corolla facing southbound driven by David Jarman and a Green Fiat facing northbound driven by Davis, according to Lyon.
The wreck scene suggested a head-on collision with Davis’ vehicle traveling northbound in the southbound lane of traffic, Lyon said.
Davis’ criminal case has not been resolved yet.
She has not commented publicly about the accident. She was taken off the air right after the incident November 11, 2012 and placed on leave. In April, she officially stepped down from her role as an anchor after more than 26 years at the station. She said goodbye on air but did not reference the DUI.
