EDWARDSVILLE – A pedestrian has filed suit against a motorist over alleged injuries after he was struck walking in Alton.

Bobbie R. Highsmith III filed a complaint on July 15 in the Madison County Circuit Court against James E. Perry alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 31, 2015, he was pushing an inoperable motorized bike in a parking lane on Washington Avenue in Alton when the defendant left his lane of travel and struck the plaintiff. The plaintiff alleges he sustained injuries, but not limited to, his right hand that made him sick, sore, lame and disordered. The plaintiff holds Perry responsible because the defendant allegedly negligently and carelessly failed to reduce vehicle speed, lost control of the vehicle and disobeyed law of traffic.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in his favor in an amount of more than $50,000. He is represented by Craig J. Jensen of MeyerJensen PC in Alton.
