BELLEVILLE — A driver is suing two motorists for allegedly hitting his vehicle while he was attempting to make a left turn.
Joseph L. Sandy filed a complaint on April 26 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Victoria L. Douglas and Jennifer R. Delashmit, alleging they failed to exercise reasonable care in the operation of their vehicles.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 2, 2015, he was driving in a northerly direction on Greenmount Road at its intersection with Golf Course Drive in St. Clair County when he used his left turn signal and attempted to make the turn. He claims the defendants struck his car while he was making the left turn.
As a result, Sandy claims he suffered partial disability, pain and suffering, lost wages and medical expenses.
He alleges Douglas and Delashmit failed to keep their vehicles under proper control and failed to stop their vehicles in time to avoid colliding with other vehicles.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in an amount in excess of $50,000, plus costs of suit and other further relief the court deems just and proper.
He is represented by Jack A. Strellis of Strellis and Field Chartered in Waterloo.
