BELLEVILLE — A passenger is suing the driver of another vehicle for allegedly causing an East St. Louis crash.
Nikki Felton filed a complaint on March 22 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Dennis Lloyd, of Bond County, alleging he failed to exercise ordinary care to avoid an accident.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 18, 2015, she was a passenger in a vehicle when it was struck on the side by a vehicle driven by the defendant.
As a result, Felton claims she sustained injuries, suffered pain and incurred medical bills.
The plaintiff alleges Lloyd failed to apply his breaks when necessary to avoid the collision, drove at an excessive speed, failed to keep a proper lookout and failed to obey traffic signals.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in an amount in excess of the jurisdictional minimum and any further relief the court deems just and proper.
She is represented by Lorenzo Hester and Melissa K. Griffeth of The Hester Group LLC in St. Louis.
