EDWARDSVILLE – A motorist is suing a Moro driver, alleging negligence over injuries she says suffered in a collision allegedly caused by the defendant.
Kathleen Bristow filed the lawsuit Feb. 19 in Madison County Circuit Court against Mark Sanneman of Moro, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, on Jan. 25, 2015, Bristow was driving southbound on Moreland Road at its intersection with Roosevelt Street in Bethalto. At the same time, Sanneman was driving westbound on Roosevelt Street toward the intersection. The suit says he entered the intersection when it was unsafe to do so and collided with the plaintiff's vehicle, causing her injuries.
The lawsuit says the defendant was negligent in failing to keep his vehicle under control, failing to brake in time to avoid a collision and failing to yield at an intersection.
As a result, the suit says, the plaintiff received injuries to her abdomen and right should, will continue to incur medical bills and has lost wages.
Bristow seeks a judgment of more than $50,000, plus court costs. She is represented by attorney Samuel A. Mormino Jr. of Mormino, Velloff & Snider PC in Alton.
