Ailing Bobbi Kristina Brown has been sued by a motorist who claims he was severely injured in a car crash she caused early this year.

Russell J Eckerman said in his lawsuit that the head-on crash left him with medical bills and damages exceeded $732,610.22, reported Ace Showbiz.

Russell alleges the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, who continues to fight for her life in Atlanta hospice center, 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.”

She then allegedly lost control of her Jeep Liberty, crossed the center line and collided with Russell’s Ford Taurus.

Russel said he was rushed to hospital after he sustained “significant injuries” from the accident, including facial, spinal and skull fractures, a laceration on his scalp and a left wrist sprain. He was placed in a medically induced coma and on a ventilator.

Russell is also suing Ford Motor Company and a third driver for negligent driving. He claimed the airbag on his car did not deploy properly and its seatbelt was defective.

Bobbi’s conservator hasn’t commented on the issue yet.
