GREEN RIVER, Utah (NBC/KSL) - There is a new twist in the case of a Utah Boy Scout leader caught on tape knocking over an ancient rock formation.
Glenn Taylor claimed he was protecting people from the fragile rock -- just weeks after he filed a lawsuit that says he suffered debilitating injuries in a car crash four years before.
"I was surprised that the man who pushed over this 2,000-pound rock formation was the one suing me for disability," said Cassie MacDonald.
Still, the junior at BYU, and her father, Alan MacDonald, haven't yet been served with lawsuit papers. Alan was only recently notified of the case by his insurance company.
The father and daughter had seen the video of Glenn Taylor wiggling and pushing over the boulder at Goblin Valley State Park.
But they had no idea until this weekend that it was the same man who was also suing them for great pain and suffering, disability, impairment, loss of joys of life and more than $5,000 in medical costs.
"He puts his whole back into it," said Alan.
"I was going through the intersection, just sneezed and looked up, and all the cars had been stopped," said Cassie, recounting her car accident.
Cassie was driving her mother's Nissan Armada in American Fork in September 2009. She says the speed limit was about 35 mph and that it was raining.
When she saw stopped cars ahead, she says she tried to break and slid into four cars -- including that of Glenn Taylor. But no one involved, according to Cassie, reported injuries or filed suit.
"Only Mr. Taylor knows the reason why it took four years to file a lawsuit," said Alan.
A very dangerous situation was averted when crews contained a chemical leak during a fire at a business in Grand Haven Tuesday morning.
