A Louisiana man is suing the United Parcel Service after cargo allegedly fell from a UPS truck and struck his vehicle. According to the lawsuit which was recently moved to federal court in New Orleans, the incident occurred last summer on I-10.
The man says that he was driving down the interstate behind a UPS truck when some of the cargo on the truck came loose and a spool of wire fell off of the back of the truck and rolled into the highway. The driver says that in order to avoid the wire spool he had to undertake severe evasive action but was not completely successful. Some portions of the spool spun off and still allegedly made contact with the vehicle, causing damage to it.
