Taylor, the man who is seen actually shoving the rock to the ground, had filed a personal injury lawsuit against a woman and her father for injuries he says he suffered in a 2009 car crash. Taylor filed the lawsuit at the beginning of September saying that after that accident he injured his back and had to "endure great pain and suffering, disability, impairment, loss of joy of life." Taylor also says in the lawsuit that the accident was "debilitating."As anyone who's been in a car accident can attest, sometimes these pains do linger. But, it seems the defendants, and potential jurors, might have some serious questions about the validity of Glenn Taylor's claims.
Alan Macdonald says he was surprised when he saw the lawsuit come across his desk. He says his daughter rear-ended several cars during that accident, Taylor, he says, was one of them. Macdonald says no one went to the hospital after the crash.
He says after watching the video that has taken off across the Internet, he thinks Taylor doesn't look debilitated at all, "he's climbing over other rocks," says Macdonald, after watching the tape, "then he lines up, gets leverage and pushes that big old rock several times before he finally pushes it over," Macdonald continues, "then he turns and twists and high fives and yucks it up and flexes his muscles he just doesn't look like a terribly disabled person to me."
