A young driver whose accident with a car driven by Albert Haynesworth led to hip replacement surgery, filed suit against the former Tennessee Titans star on Monday.

Corey Edmondson, 25, filed a lawsuit in Williamson County Chancery Court, which asks Haynesworth to pay $7.5 million stemming from a Dec. 13, 2008 incident near Interstate 65 and Concord Lane.

When The City Paper first reported the story on Feb. 13, Edmondson said he had hired an attorney but that he was more interested in getting “an apology” from his “favorite Titans player.” Haynesworth was charged with reckless driving and driving a vehicle with expired registration following the accident. Those charges are still pending.

Haynesworth was a free agent this off-season, signing a $100 million contract with the Washington Redskins.
