LATROBE, Pa. – A woman is claiming in a lawsuit that a house that was turned into a shrine to then-presidential candidate Donald Trump played a part in a car accident in which she was severely injured.

The suit by Kelly Roadman contends the shrine acted as a distraction when another driver struck her car in October 2016.

The home in Unity Township, Pennsylvania, that became known as the “Trump House” was painted like an American flag, with a 12-foot-high waving Trump cutout out front.

The Tribune-Review reports that Roadman’s car was struck when a driver tried to turn left to view the display. She is seeking more than $30,000 in damages.

The property owner could not be reached for comment.
