BELLEVILLE — A motorist is suing another driver for allegedly causing a rear-end collision.
Thomas Kammler filed a complaint on Jan. 6 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Amanda Combs, alleging she failed to maintain proper control of her vehicle.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 18, 2016, he was operating his 2004 Impala eastbound on West Main Street near its intersection with South 23rd Street when he was struck from behind by Combs.
As a result, he claims he sustained severe and permanent injuries resulting in great pain, mental anguish, loss of income and medical expenses.
Kammler alleges Combs failed to yield right of way, failed to maintain careful lookout and failed to reduce speed to avoid collision.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensation in excess of $50,000, plus costs expended for this suit.
He is represented by Gregory L. Shevlin of Brauer & Shevlin Ltd. in Belleville.
