A status conference in a suit filed by a family allegedly injured in a collision stemming from a car-jacking has been moved to June.

St. Clair County Associate Judge Andrew Gleeson signed an order April 4 moving the conference in the suit brought by Allison, Geoffrey, and Robert Credi against the estate of
Brandon Williams and Alphonso Demarco Jones.

The Credi family is seeking damages in excess of $150,000 and other relief.

The Credis claim to have been injured when a car driven by the defendants collided with theirs on the Martin Luther King Jr. Bridge in East St. Louis.

The defendants, according to the suit, had car-jacked the owners of the vehicle they were driving just before hitting the Credis.

Robert and Geoffrey Credi claim to have been injured in the suit.

Allison Credi seeks damages for loss of consortium.

Neither the Williams estate nor Jones has entered their answers to the suit to date.

Louis A. DePaepe of Taylorville represents the plaintiffs.

The case is St. Clair case number 10-L-656.
