According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 12, 2014, he was acting in the course and scope with his employment with U.S. Postal Service when he was struck by defendant’s truck, which was operated by its employee, Steve Russell. The plaintiff alleges sustained injuries to his head, neck, back, shoulders, legs and right knee as a result of the collision.
