BELLEVILLE — A driver is suing Terminal Railroad Association and one of its employees for allegedly causing a collision.
Richard Galbrath filed a complaint on Nov. 7 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Marvin McCann and his employer, Terminal Railroad Associates of St. Louis, alleging a breach of duty to exercise reasonable care for the safety of other drivers.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 28, 2015, he was stopped at a traffic signal when his vehicle was hit by a Terminal Railroad vehicle operated by McCann, resulting in injuries and medical expenses.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to maintain careful lookout, failed to reduce speed and failed to maintain proper control of the vehicle.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in excess of $50,000, plus costs of this suit and such other relief as the court deems just and proper.
He is represented by George H. Albers of Roth Law Offices LLC in Granite City.
