An Oswego man is accused of rear-ending another driver at an intersection in Kendall County.
Craig M. Coffey filed a lawsuit against William J. Kauski July 26 in St. Clair County Circuit Court.
Coffey says he was driving north on Illinois Route 47 in July 2011 and was waiting for oncoming traffic to pass before making a right turn onto Illinois Route 71. Kauski allegedly crashed into the back of Coffey's car. Coffey claims his back was seriously hurt in the crash.
Coffey accuses Kauski of negligence and asks for more than $50,000 in damages for medical bills, lost wages and court costs. He is represented by attorneys Steven L. Groves and R. Seth Crompton of St. Louis.
