Cypress resident Gabriela Valencia recently filed a lawsuit against Harris County after Sergeant Matt Stouffer of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office allegedly struck her with his patrol car on December 9, 2014. The accident occurred along the Spring Cypress-Woods Spillane intersection.
Documents filed on Monday, November 21 in Harris County Court showed Valencia is seeking $100,000 for personal injury and mental anguish. According to preliminary investigations, upon making a right turn onto Spring Cypress, Stouffer’s vehicle crashed into Valencia, causing her head hit the curb. A Google Maps image from May of this year showed there was no crosswalk at the Spring Cypress-Woods Spillane intersection.
