EDWARDSVILLE — A Collinsville motorist is suing a Joliet driver and two Chicago companies, alleging the defendants' negligence caused a crash that injured the plaintiff.
Elizabeth M. Ross filed a lawsuit Sept. 1 in Madison County Circuit Court against Thomas P. Dubois, SJR Enterprise LLC and The Roy Houff Company LLC, alleging Dubois negligently drove his vehicle.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 10, 2014, Ross was driving on St. Louis Road near O'Farrell Avenue in Collinsville when Dubois crossed into her lane. The suit says Dubois struck the front-end of Ross' vehicle, causing her to sustain injuries and experience pain, lost wages and medical care expenses.
The plaintiff alleges Dubois, who was driving for SJR Enterprise and The Roy Houff Company, failed to timely apply his brakes and negligently operated his vehicle at an excessive rate of speed.
Ross seeks trial by jury, judgment against each defendants of more than $50,000, plus court costs. She is represented by attorney Brian D. Kurth of Meyerford & Meyerford LLC in St. Louis.
