EDWARDSVILLE — A Madison County woman is suing an Edwardsville man, alleging the defendant's negligence caused a car crash that injured the plaintiff.
Erin Goebel filed a lawsuit July 12 in Madison County Circuit Court against Samuel McKeehan alleging negligence in failing to obey a traffic control device.
According to the complaint, on April 25, 2015, Goebel was operating her motor vehicle on North Bluff Road in Collinsville and was stopped near the intersection of Eastport Plazae. At the same time McKeehan was driving his motor vehicle south when he made a right-hand turn and collided with plaintiff's vehicle, the suit says.
The lawsuit states the plaintiff sustained severe injuries and incurred medical expenses. The plaintiff alleges McKeehan failed to yield right of way, failed to keep proper lookout, failed to reduce speed and drove his vehicle in a reckless manner.
Goebel seeks a trial by jury, judgment of more than $50,000, plus legal costs. She is represented by attorneys Brian M. Wendler and Angie Zinzilieta of Wendler Law PC in Edwardsville.
