A Madison County woman is suing a bar patron and the bar that served him liquor in an alleged drunk driving accident.
Jamey Camerer filed a lawsuit on Aug. 31 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Adam Cobb, Alton Sports TAP, Alton Sports Tap Inc. RW Eveans and Donstar Inc.
According to the complaint, on June 6, there was a traffic accident between Camerer’s Toyota Prius and Cobb’s GMC Denali at the intersection of state Route 140 and Crest Drive in Alton when Cobb ran a stop sign. The suit says after colliding with Camerer’s vehicle, Cobb fled the scene and was intoxicated.
Due to the accident, the lawsuit states, the plaintiff suffered physical injuries to her neck, back, shoulders and other areas, in addition to lost wages, mental anguish and medical costs.
The suit alleges negligence on the part of Alton Sports TAP and the other defendants, saying they served Cobb liquor before the accident.
Camerer seeks more than $50,000 in damages and litigation costs. She is represented by attorneys Michael P. Glisson and Timothy J. Chartrand of Williamson, Webster, Falb & Glisson of Alton.
Madison County Circuit Court case number 15-L-1117.
