BELLEVILLE — A driver is suing another motorist for allegedly causing a collision at a red light in O'Fallon.
Trina L. Redd-Elliott filed a complaint on March 17 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Travis C. Borner alleging that the defendant failed to follow traffic signs to avoid an accident.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, on Dec. 12, 2015, while driving in an easterly direction on an exit ramp of Interstate 64 in O'Fallon, her vehicle was struck during a red light. As a result, Redd-Elliot claims she suffered physical injuries and loss of wages and incurred medical expenses.
The plaintiff holds Borner responsible because he allegedly failed to keep a proper lookout for other vehicles, failed to properly apply the brakes of the vehicle and failed to stop at the red light and yield right of way to approaching traffic.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in a sum of money in excess of $50,000 plus costs of suit and other further relief which the court deems proper. She is represented by Charles W. Courtney Jr. of Courtney, Clark and Mejias PC in Belleville.
