BELLEVILLE — A motorist is suing another driver for allegedly running a stop sign and causing a collision.
Ronald Walker filed a complaint on Feb. 23 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Robert Edwards, alleging he failed to operate his vehicle with the highest degree of care to avoid collision.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 17, 2016, he was operating his vehicle on West Boulevard approaching the intersection with East Main Street when he allegedly collided with the defendant's vehicle.
As a result, Walker claims he suffered multiple injuries to his cervical spine, pain and incurred medical expenses.
The plaintiff alleges the defendant failed to obey a posted stop sign, failed to keep proper lookout, failed to yield the right of way and drove at an excessive rate of speed under the circumstances.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages in an amount greater than $50,000 for costs, pre and post-judgment interest and any other further relief the court deems just and proper.
He is represented by Mark A. Cantor of Cantor Injury Law, LLC in St. Louis.
