BELLEVILLE — Two people allege injuries following St. Clair County accident.
Whittnee Jones and Brittnee Jones filed a complaint on Nov. 9 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Kristin L. Tolar, alleging the defendant failed to exercise the highest degree of care to avoid a collision.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on Feb. 20, 2015, they were traveling westbound on Salem Place in St. Clair County when the defendant swerved and collided with their vehicle.
As a result, they claim they sustained injuries resulting in pain and suffering and medical expenses.
The plaintiffs allege Tolar negligently operated her vehicle at a speed greater than reasonable, failed to sound warning of her approach and improperly used the plaintiffs' lane.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment in excess of $50,000 for each of them, plus cost of suit.
They are represented by Andrew G. Toennies of Lashly & Baer PC in St. Louis.
