An Alton man is suing after allegedly sustaining injuries in a vehicle collision.

Enoch R. Smith filed a complaint Aug. 31 in Madison County Circuit Court against Diane L. Adler, alleging negligence.

On May 31, 2014, the complaint states, Smith was driving his vehicle on West Ninth Street near the intersection with Bluff in Madison County, when Adler's vehicle collided with his.

The complaint states Adler was negligent in failing to keep proper lookout, failing to slow or stop her vehicle to avoid collision, failing to ensure no oncoming traffic existed before proceeding into the intersection, and other negligent acts or omissions.

As a result of the collision, Smith sustained serious injuries, medical expenses, and has lost wages, the complaint states.

Smith seeks a judgment of more than $50,000, plus court costs. He is represented by Edward W. Unsell and Fred Patrick Schuman of East Alton.
