A Missouri man has filed suit against a driver who he claims collided with him at a Madison intersection.

Michael Hohensee claims he was driving west on East Broadway on Dec. 15, 2008, at about 10:30 a.m. and had a green light at its intersection with Come-In Place.

At the same time, defendant Linda Joy Inavoff, who was sitting in the left turn lane on East Broadway, attempted to turn left into Come-In Place when the light changed to green, but failed to control her vehicle and struck Hohensee's, according to the complaint filed Aug. 27 in Madison County Circuit Court.

Because of the collision, Hohensee incurred medical costs to treat his back and lumbar spine injuries, experienced great physical pain and is hindered from pursuing his normal course of employment, the suit states.

Inavoff negligently failed to stop to avoid a collision, failed to control her vehicle, drove too fast, failed to keep a proper lookout and failed to yield when making a left turn, the complaint says.

In his suit, Hohensee is seeking a judgment of more than $50,000, plus costs, pre-judgment interest and other relief the court deems just.

Robert B. Ramsey of the Law Offices of Michael R. Bilbrey in Glen Carbon will be representing him.

Madison County Circuit Court case number: 10-L-896.
