EDWARDSVILLE — A driver and passenger are suing a Wisconsin motorist for allegedly causing an Alton rear-end collision.
Jordan Clark and Zachariah Yinger filed a complaint on Feb. 23 in Madison County Circuit Court against Kyle S. Fischer, alleging the Wisconsin motorist failed to operate his vehicle in a safe and prudent manner.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on Oct. 30, 2016, they were in a motor vehicle being driven by Clark traveling westbound on Broadway at George Street in Alton. They were stopped at a traffic signal when they were allegedly rear-ended by the defendant's pickup truck.
As a result, they claim they sustained injuries that required medical attention.
The plaintiffs allege Fischer failed to maintain proper lookout, followed the plaintiffs' vehicle too closely and drove his vehicle at a speed greater than normal.
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 Lanny Darr of Darr Law Offices Ltd. in Alton.
