BELLEVILLE – The driver of a motor
vehicle is suing over injuries he claims he received when the another
vehicle collided with his.
Ryan J. Missey filed the suit April 22
in St. Clair County Circuit Court against David M. Potts.
On May 10, 2014, Missey claims he was
driving northbound on Route 111, entering the westbound ramp
approaching Interstate 64 in Washington Park, the suit states. At the same time and place, Potts was also driving northbound and entering the westbound ramp
of the interstate.
Missey claims Potts negligently caused a collision by failing to keep his
vehicle under proper control, failing to keep a proper lookout,
driving too closely behind the plaintiff's vehicle and failing to stop to
avoid a collision.
As a result, Missey claims he
was injured in his nervous system, he continues to suffer mental pain
and anguish, and he has amassed medical bills, the suit states.
In addition to a trial by a jury of
six, the plaintiff seeks judgment in excess of $50,000 plus court
costs. He is represented by Jeanne L. AuBuchon of AuBuchon & Lee
LLC in Belleville.
