Motorist sued following Alton collision

By Robbie Hargett | Sep 24, 2015


A man is suing another man following a vehicle collision the two were involved in on Route 67.

Edward G. Drach filed a on complaint Sept. 3 in Madison County Circuit Court against Calvin J. Davis, alleging negligence.

On Dec. 24, 2013, at approximately 5:03 p.m., the complaint states, Drach was driving his 2006 Ford automobile southbound on Route 67 near Northport in Alton. At the same time, Davis, driving his 2003 Chrysler automobile northbound on Route 67, attempted to make a left turn onto Northport and allegedly collided with Drach's vehicle.

The complaint states Davis was negligent in failing to reduce his speed to avoid a collision, speeding, failing to maneuver to avoid a collision, failing to keep a proper lookout and failing to yield the right-of-way.

As a result, Drach suffered injuries to his neck and right shoulder, for which he has incurred medical expenses. He has also experienced pain and suffering, lost wages and earning capacity, and suffered disability and disfigurement as a result of the accident, the complaint states.

Drach seeks a judgment in excess of $50,000, plus costs of the suit. He is represented by Rodney D. Caffey of the Caffey Law Firm LLC in Godfrey.

Madison County Circuit Court case number 15-L-1147
