A Millstadt woman has filed suit against the man who she claims allowed her to drive a malfunctioning golf cart into a car.

Christina Bold claims defendant Nate Morris allowed her to drive a Yamaha golf cart at a campground at Lake Kincaid in Jackson on May 29, 2010. However, the golf cart had a mechanical malfunction, causing Bold to drive the cart into a car, according to the complaint filed Aug. 24 in St. Clair County Circuit Court.

Because of the incident, Bold became sick, sore, lame, disordered and disabled and received arm and shoulder injuries, the suit states. In addition, she incurred medical costs and suffered disability, the complaint says.

Bold blames Morris for causing her injuries, saying he negligently failed to properly maintain the golf cart, allowed her to drive the golf cart when it was not safe to do so and failed to warn her of the unsafe condition.

In her complaint, Bold is seeking a judgment of more than $50,000, plus costs.

She will be represented by Kirk A. Caponi of the Law Offices of Williams, Caponi and Foley in Belleville.

St. Clair County Circuit Court case number: 11-L-474.
