A St. Clair County man says he was hurt when another driver crossed the center line and crashed into him.
Aguiles Torres Medina filed a lawsuit Oct. 1 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Helen J. Knopik.
According to the complaint, Medina was driving north on Kingshighway near the city of Fairmont on November 2011. Medina says Knopik was driving south on Kingshighway at the same time and crossed into the opposite lane of traffic. Medina claims he was hurt when Knopik crashed into the front of his vehicle.
Medina accuses Knopik of negligence and asks for more than $50,000 in damages for medical bills, loss of income and court fees.
Medina is represented by attorney Gregory M. Tobin of East Alton.
