SACRAMENTO, Calif. (CN) - Three people were injured in a car wreck caused by a Kaiser employee, they say in a complaint filed in Sacramento Superior Court.

Plaintiffs Esmeralda and Felipe Silva, and Maria Vasquez allege they were driving in Roseville, Calif. in July 2011 when they were rear-ended by Zinoviy Khomitz, a Kaiser employee who was driving a vehicle owned by a Kaiser hospital.

“Khomitz operated the vehicle in an unsafe manner and with excessive speed. He failed to stop his vehicle in time for slowed traffic and collided with the vehicle driven by plaintiff Silva. Defendant Kaiser was negligent in hiring and training its employee in proper operation of a motor vehicle. All plaintiffs were injured and required medical treatment.”

Plaintiffs are represented by Janusz Seremak and Peter Stone.
