Justin Guarini Sued Over Traffic Accident

AMERICAN IDOL runner-up JUSTIN GUARINI has been sued by a couple accusing him of ramming into the back of their car on a Pennsylvania road.

The lawsuit filed on Friday (07NOV03) in NORTHAMPTON COUNTY COURT contends that Guarini, 25, drove his truck into the rear of a car occupied by LOUIS A and ADRIENNE MAIATICO.

The lawsuit alleges that Guarini was looking at papers and took his eyes off the road when the vehicles collided on 12 March 2002.

The Maiaticos were stopped at a red light and Guarini was driving too fast, the lawsuit states. Bethlehem police cited Guarini for following too closely to the couple's car. He filed papers to appeal the ticket but decided against leaving Los Angeles to appear in court on 12 September 2002, so he paid the $25 (GBP15) fine and $75 (GBP46) in court costs, according to his attorney DOUGLAS C ROGER JR.

The suit contends that Louis Maiatico suffered injuries to his back, neck and side. The Maiaticos are seeking more than $100,000 (GBP62,500) in the two-count suit.
