A passenger who was allegedly injured in a Madison County accident is suing the driver of the car he was riding in and the motorist that hit them.
Dusty Sanders, a passenger in a car driven by Margaret Adams, filed suit against Adams and Demarco Koontz, the operator of a second vehicle, on Oct. 5 in Madison County Circuit Court, alleging the defendants negligently operated its motor vehicle.
According to the complaint, on March 17 Koontz was driving northbound on Fosterburg Road near Storey Lane and while attempting to turn east he collided with the car operated by Margaret Adams. The accident allegedly injured the plaintiff, a passenger in the Adams' vehicle.
The plaintiff asserts both drivers operated negligently, recklessly and without regard for the plaintiff's physical safety. Sanders is demanding damages of more than $50,000 plus costs and fees.
She is represented by Ely Hadowsky of Brown & Brown of St. Louis.
