EDWARDSVILLE — A Madison County driver is suing another motorist, alleging his negligence caused a car crash that injured the plaintiff.

Danny Lanter filed a lawsuit July 7, in the Madison County Circuit Court against Devon Bledsoe alleging negligence in failing to exercise ordinary care with a motor vehicle. 

According to the complaint, on July 15, 2014, Lanter was driving a motor vehicle on state Highway 160 in Highland while Bledsoe was operating a vehicle behind him. The suit says the defendant's vehicle collided with Lanter's vehicle, causing him to be tossed within his vehicle, and leading to the plaintiff suffering disabling injuries that resulted in pain, loss of earnings and medical expenses. 

The plaintiff alleges Bledsoe failed to maintain proper lookout, operated his vehicle at an excessive rate of speed and failed to yield right of way.

Lanter seeks a trial by jury, judgment of more than $50,000, plus legal costs. He is represented by attorney Daniel G. Broombaugh of Kolker Law Offices PC in Belleville.
