EDWARDSVILLE — An Alton motorist is suing a Bunker Hill woman, alleging her negligence caused a crash that injured the plaintiff.
Lloyd Reed filed a complaint on Sept. 7, in the Madison County Circuit Court against Christina Cook alleging she disobeyed a traffic signal.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 7, 2014, Reed was operating a 1998 Mercury Grand Marquis, attempting to turn east on state Route 140 when Cook, who was approaching the intersection, caused a collision with plaintiff's vehicle.
As a result of the crash, the suit says, Reed sustained severe and permanent injuries, pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life. The plaintiff alleges Cook traveled at an excessive rate of speed, disobeyed a traffic signal, failed to keep proper lookout and failed to use caution to avoid the accident.
Reed seeks trial by jury, damages of more than $50,000, plus legal costs, pre-judgment and post-judgment interest, attorney fees and all other relief the court deems appropriate.
He is represented by attorney Michael R. Wesley of the Law Office of Michael R. Wesley LLC in Wood River.
