BELLEVILLE — A driver and passenger are suing a motorist for allegedly causing a collision.
Amanda Gavins and Nina Young filed a complaint on Nov. 2 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Tamara Thompson, alleging she breached her duty to exercise reasonable care to protect others on the road.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on March 15, Gavins was driving through Centreville with Young as a passenger when Thompson, traveling the opposite direction, made a left turn directly in front of their vehicle, causing a collision.
As a result, the plaintiffs sustained injuries, suffered loss of wages and incurred medical expenses, the suit states.
The plaintiffs allege Thompson failed to maintain proper lookout, operated her vehicle at a speed greater than reasonable and negligently made a left turn in front of the plaintiffs' vehicle.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment in their favor in excess of $50,000 for each of them, plus costs of this suit.
They are represented by John H. Hustava of John Hustava Attorney at Law in Collinsville.
