A Godfrey man says he was hurt while riding his motorcycle when another driver tried to turn left in front of him at an intersection.

Torin H. Mitchell filed a lawsuit against Glen F. Vest Sept. 10 in Madison County Circuit Court.

Mitchell was riding his motorcycle south on Pierce Lane, according to the complaint, in April. As he neared the intersection of Summerfield Lane, Mitchell says Vest, driving his car north on Pierce Lane, tried to turn left onto Summerfield and crashed into him.

Mitchell accuses Vest of negligence and asks for more than $50,000 in damages for medical bills and court costs.

He is represented by attorney Lanny Darr of Alton.
