EDWARDSVILLE — A motorcyclist is suing another motorist for allegedly causing a Granite City collision.
Andrew D. Blackwell filed a complaint on March 31 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Mary L. Bowles, alleging she failed to operate her motor vehicle in a safe, reasonable and prudent manner.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 9, 2015, he stopped at the intersection of 22nd Street and Niedringhaus and used a blinker before turning left onto 22nd Street when his motorcycle was suddenly struck from the back end by Bowles, who was turning right onto the same road.
As a result, Blackwell claims he suffered physical injuries and incurred out-of-pocket expenses and financial loss.
The plaintiff alleges Bowles failed to make a proper right turn at an intersection, failed to keep proper lookout, failed stop her motor vehicle before the traffic crash and failed to give proper signal or warning to plaintiff.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in an amount to exceed $50,000, plus costs of this lawsuit and any other further relief the court deems proper.
He is represented by Patrick G. King of King Law Firm LLC in Alton.
