A man is suing over claims he was injured while a passenger in a vehicle when its driver failed to stop at a stop sign.

Anthony J. Gonzales filed a lawsuit Oct. 17 in Madison County Circuit Court against Jonathan D. Schienschang, citing negligence.

According to the complaint, Gonzales was a passenger in a vehicle being operated by Schienschang on Buchanan Street in Edwardsville on Aug. 3, when the vehicle entered the street's intersection with Hillsboro Avenue and collided with one vehicle and then another. Gonzales says he sustained injuries in the collision and accuses Schienschang of failing to control the vehicle and to stop at a stop sign.

Gonzales is seeking more than $50,000 in damages plus costs of suit. He is represented by attorney Patrick J. Hanlon of Frederick & Hagle in Urbana.
