Two men from the D.C. area are suing Rep. Paul Ryan and his chief of staff for $100,000, alleging negligent driving caused Ryan’s top aide to rear-end their car while he was driving his boss’ vehicle.
Santos Perez, the driver, and Adan Bamaca Cajas, a passenger in Perez’s vehicle, claim they sustained concussions and spinal damage in the Feb. 25, 2014, collision on northbound Interstate 395.
