EDWARDSVILLE — A driver and passenger allege injuries resulting from a car crash.
Patricia and Nathan Wilson filed a complaint on Jan. 27 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Jessie L. Jones, alleging he failed to operate his vehicle in a way that would avoid damage and injury to other motorists.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on Feb. 1, 2015, they were stopped at a red light when the defendant negligently collided with their vehicle at a speed of approximately 25-30 miles per hour, causing both plaintiffs to sustain injuries.
As a result, the Wilsons claim they suffered great pain and mental anguish, loss of earnings and medical expenses.
The plaintiffs allege the defendant failed to keep careful lookout, drove the vehicle in a careless/reckless manner and failed to stop, swerve, slacken speed, sound a warning, or any combination thereof to avoid the accident.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek for an amount exceeding $50,000 and for any other relief as the Court may deem just and proper.
They are represented by Thomas R. Applewhite of Donner Applewhite, Attorneys at Law in St. Louis.
