A Waterloo man is suing a driver and employer, alleging negligence after he says a motor vehicle accident left him injured.

Dwight R. Donley filed a lawsuit Nov. 17 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Donald L. Ott and Petroff Trucking Inc.

According to the complaint, on Aug. 25, Donley was stopped at the stop sign northbound on Jefferson Street in St. Clair County. Ott, individually and as an employee of Petroff Trucking, made a left turn southbound and allegedly struck Donley's vehicle, the suit says.

The lawsuit states the plaintiff was injured and disabled, causing him to seek and pay for medical assistance. He also has lost wages and benefits as a result of the injuries and is sure to do so in the future, the suit says.

Donley seeks at least $50,000 from both defendants in damages, court costs and attorney fees. He is represented by attorney Stephen C. Buser of the Law Office of Stephen C. Buser of Columbia.

St. Clair County Circuit Court case number 15-L-659.
