A man involved in a collision in Chouteau alleges injuries in a Madison County suit.

Michael R. Steinway was driving north on Route 203 at its intersection with the eastbound ramp of I-270 on Feb. 10 when Jason E. White, who was driving west on the exit ramp of I-270 at its intersection with Route 203, ran a stop sign and collided with Steinway, according to the complaint filed April 6.

Because of the collision, Steinway was made sick, sore, lame, disordered and disabled and suffered extensive injuries to his head, body and limbs, the suit states.

Steinway claims he also received a concussion, injuries to his cervical, shoulder and lumbar area, incurred medical costs, suffered disability, experienced pain and suffering, lost money and suffered an impairment of future earning capacity.

White was negligent by failing to keep a proper lookout, by failing to properly apply his brakes, by driving too fast, by failing to yield the right-of-way and by driving a vehicle without adequate brakes, according to the complaint.

Steinway is seeking a judgment in excess of $50,000, plus costs.

He is represented by John H. Hustava of Collinsville.

Madison County Circuit Court case number: 09-L-348.
