A woman filed suit against Imagine Music Festival, Atlanta Motor Speedway and a variety of other companies, saying she was run over and dragged by a worker’s car at the festival in 2016.
Suzanne Randall was lounging with others on the ground at the annual electronic music festival when the 2013 Chevrolet Equinox drove through and “stopped on” her and another woman, the suit alleges. The reported driver, Alexander Cueller, was working for Chamblee-based Windpouch, which makes hammocks.
“He then backed up after festival goers began yelling at him to do so,” the suit, filed in DeKalb County State Court, says. “While backing up, he dragged Ms. Randall for some distance with his vehicle.”
A music festival representative declined to comment on the suit Wednesday, as did one for the speedway. The other defendants, including 1 Alliance Security Group and Consulting, Big Boy Security and Windpouch, didn’t respond immediately. Cueller couldn’t be located for comment.
Randall had a broken pelvis and sustained “many other injuries and painful abrasions,” the suit says, adding that she “was forced to learn how to walk again.” She spent five days in the hospital.
The suit claims all the parties were negligent in failing to ensure the injuries didn’t happen. It happened after 1 a.m. in an area where other people were also congregating on the ground, the suit said.
Randall is asking for damages in an amount determined in court.
