EDWARDSVILLE — A Madison County motorist is suing a Jacksonville driver, alleging her negligence caused a crash that injured the plaintiff.
Dorcas Millitello filed a lawsuit Sept. 2 in Madison County Circuit Court against Jean B. Weni Nzuaweni, alleging negligence in failing to exercise reasonable care for the safety of others.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 29, 2014, Millitello was driving a 2014 Honda Accord westbound on Montclair Avenue near its intersection with Godfrey Road in Godfrey. The suit says Nzuaweni attempted to pass Millitello's car but drove his vehicle into the side of the plaintiff's vehicle causing a collision.
As a result of the collision, the lawsuit states, Millitello was injured, resulting in pain of body and mind and medical expenses. The plaintiff alleges Nzuaweni drove his vehicle at a speed too fast for the conditions, failed to keep proper lookout and failed to keep his vehicle under proper control.
Millitello seeks trial by jury, judgment of more than $50,000, plus costs of suit. She is represented by attorney Samuel A. Mormino Jr. of Mormino, Vellof & Snider PC in Alton.
