EDWARDSVILLE — A driver is suing a Highland motorist for alleged crashing into the rear of his truck.
Jeremy M. Morgan filed a complaint on March 29 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Reagan M. Thornton alleging she failed to exercise reasonable care and caution in the operation of her vehicle.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 11, 2015, he was driving in a southerly direction when the rear of his Chevy pickup was struck.
As a result, Morgan claims he suffered physical injuries and lost wages and incurred medical expenses.
The plaintiff alleges the defendant failed to decrease the speed of her vehicle to avoid collision, failed to keep proper lookout ahead for other traffic and failed to slow down, stop, swerve or turn her vehicle in order to avoid the collision.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in a sum of money in excess of $50,000, which he says will fairly, adequate and fully compensate him for his injuries as determined at the time of trial and for his costs of suit.
He is represented by Matthew R. Chapman of Becker, Schroader and Chapman PC in Granite City.
