EDWARDSVILLE – A Brighton motorist is suing a Gillespie resident after an accident in Brighton.
Kathryn Thomas filed a complaint on July 19 in Madison County Circuit Court against Dayle Clevenger alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Sept. 3, 2014, she was driving southbound on Fosterburg Road in Brighton when the defendant's vehicle violently collided with her vehicle, causing her injuries to her right foot, right heel and chest that resulted in pain and suffering, mental anguish and incurred medical expenses. The plaintiff holds Clevenger responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to yield right of way, failed to stop at a stop sign, failed to keep a proper lookout and drove his vehicle at a speed greater than reasonable.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant of more than $50,000 plus costs of suit. She is represented by Michael P. Glisson and Timothy J. Chartrand of Williamson, Webster, Falb & Glisson in Alton.
