Alton driver crossed center line, suit says
A Madison County man is suing the driver of a car that allegedly crossed the center line and crashed into him in Alton.
Clint Burleyson filed a lawsuit Dec. 14 against Patricia Finn in Madison County Circuit Court.
According to the complaint, Burleyson was driving north on College Street on April 11 when Finn's car, going south on College, crossed over the center line and crashed into Burleyson. Burleyson says he was seriously hurt in the head-on collision.
Burleyson accuses Finn of negligence and asks for more than $50,000 in damages for medical expenses, loss of income and court costs.
Attorney Jason R. Caraway of Kolker Law Offices in Belleville is representing Burleyson.
