LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A Lubbock teen charged with intoxication manslaughter for an April 29 car accident is now being sued for more than $1 million dollars.

Jessica Traylor, 17, was arrested after police say she was driving drunk and ran a red light, causing a six-vehicle car crash at the intersection of 19th Street and Quaker.

The lawsuit filed on May 10 claims Traylor was negligent and intoxicated when she ran the red light and smashed into an SUV driven by Storm Murry.

The documents state the impact of the collision forced the SUV into Liandro "Lynn" Garcia, 47, who was riding a motorcycle. Garcia died on the scene.

Murry and his passenger, Jane Aland, are now suing Traylor for more than $1 million dollars for negligence and failing to operate her vehicle in a safe manner.

The lawsuit states Murry's injuries include fractured ribs, a broken collarbone, a punctured lung, and severe neck, back and leg injuries. It also states he suffered physical disfigurement.

Aland also claims she suffered severe neck and back injuries from the accident.
