BELLEVILLE — An Illinois woman is suing a Fairview Heights motorist, alleging his negligence caused a vehicle crash that injured the plaintiff.
Carla Snow filed a lawsuit June 17 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Matthew Decrevel, alleging negligence in failing to exercise due care with his motor vehicle.
According to the complaint, on July 28, 2015, Snow was in her motor vehicle and stopped on the shoulder of eastbound Interstate Highway 64 when suddenly Decrevel's vehicle collided with the plaintiff's vehicle. The suit says this crash caused Snow to sustain severe and permanent injuries to her head, neck and back that resulted in physical pain and mental anguish and incurred medical expenses.
The plaintiff alleges Decrevel failed to keep proper lookout, failed to pay attention to traffic, failed to maintain proper speed, failed to maintain proper distance and failed to obey a traffic control device.
Snow seeks a trial by jury, judgment of more than $500,000, plus legal costs and such other relief as the court deems just and proper. She is represented by attorney Robert H. Pedroli, Jr. of Pedroli & Gauthier in Clayton, Missouri.
