A Cahokia man is accused of causing a crash while trying to change lanes on an on-ramp in St. Clair County.
Lori E. Ta'amai filed a lawsuit Sept. 26 against Kenneth R. Jackson in St. Clair County Circuit Court.
Ta'amai says she was driving her Dodge Intrepid north in the right lane of the on-ramp to Interstate 64/55/70 in October 2011. At the same time, according to the complaint, Jackson was driving his Dodge Stratus in the left lane of the same on-ramp. Ta'amai says Jackson crossed into her lane right in front of her, causing her to crash into the back of his car.
Jackson is accused of negligence. Ta'amai asks for more than $50,000 in damages for medical expenses and court costs.
Attorneys Mark C. Scoggins and Anthony P. Gilbreth of Columbia represent her.
