EDWARDSVILLE — A driver is suing fellow motorist Kathryn Reynolds, alleging negligence in connection with a traffic collision.
Derrick Thomas filed a complaint on Oct. 7 in Madison County Circuit Court against Reynolds, alleging that she failed to maintain proper control of her vehicle.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 10, 2014, he was operating his vehicle and was stopped at a red light when his vehicle was struck from behind by a vehicle driven by defendant. The collision caused him to sustain severe injuries resulting in pain and suffering, disfigurement, lost wages and loss of enjoyment of life, he alleges. The plaintiff holds Reynolds responsible because the defendant allegedly operated her vehicle at an excessive rate of speed, failed to monitor the flow of traffic and allowed herself to become distracted while driving.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant for an amount in excess of $50,000, plus costs of this suit. He is represented by Charles W. Armbruster and Michael T. Blotevogel of Armbruster Dripps Winterscheidt & Blotevogel LLC in Maryville.
