OCALA – An Ocala man alleges he and his son were injured when a truck driver failed stop at a stop sign.
Christopher Roland Hayes, individually and as parent and natural guardian on behalf of A.C.H., a minor, filed a complaint on Jan. 25 in the 5th Judicial Circuit Court - Marion County against Jose Manuel Morin and Alanis Trucking Co. LLC alleging negligence.
