Bobbi Kristina Brown was involved in a car accident in the days leading up to her hospitalization, and now the man involved in the accident is suing her, claiming he suffered serious injures from the crash.
According to a lawsuit filed by Russell J. Eckerman and obtained by PEOPLE, the accident occurred “on or about” Jan. 27. The suit claims Bobbi Kristina was “traveling at an imprudent speed for conditions and was following too closely and improperly attempted to change lanes in order to avoid the vehicle stopping in front of her.”
She then allegedly lost control of the 2005 Jeep Liberty she was driving, crossed the center line and collided with Eckerman’s Ford Taurus.
Eckerman claims he sustained “significant injuries” from the crash, including facial, spinal and skull fractures, a laceration on his scalp and a left wrist sprain that landed him in the hospital where he was placed in a medically induced coma and on a ventilator.
In related news, Krissy’s family is said to be making preparations for her funeral. The 22-year-old has been in hospice care since June 24. According to a report from Extra, the family is in the process of picking out a burial plot in a Westfield, New Jersey cemetery, the same place Whitney Houston was buried more than 3 years ago.
The family had initially hoped to bury Bobbi Kristina near her mother, but all the plots were taken. A source has suggested that her body “could be placed atop Whitney’s coffin,” allowing Bobbi Kristina and her mother to be “together into eternity.”
The insider also said that changes have been made to Whitney’s headstone in preparation for Bobbi Kristina to be buried there. “Whitney’s headstone now has a circular brick border garden, and two rosary necklaces have been added….a new sign spelling out ‘Love’ has also been placed to the back left of the stone,” the source told the site.
