NEW CANAAN, Conn. – The Stamford teen who was seriously injured last October in a car crash caused by a New Canaan woman has filed a civil lawsuit against the driver, reports the New Canaanite .

Michael Bivona Jr., 19, contained a list of physical injuries in the lawsuit, including injuries to his face, leg, spine and jaw, as well as emotional and psychological injuries, post-traumatic stress, loss of function, pain, anguish and a shock to his nervous system, and stated in the lawsuit that some of the injuries are “likely” to be permanent, according to the report.

As previously reported by the Daily News , Sung was driving more than 60 mph in a 30 mph zone on Silvermine Road at 5:30 p.m. when she rear-ended a BMW from Hoyt's Livery, which then struck an oncoming Subaru driven by Bivona, and a car driven by a Wilton woman. The teen was in critical condition for days after the crash and remained in Yale-New Haven Hospital until Nov. 19.

Carol Sung, 51, was driving under the influence at the time of the accident, according to the New Canaanite.
