BELLEVILLE — A passenger is suing two drivers following a Fairview Heights collision.
Mandy Hawkins filed a complaint on March 22 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Cortez Nunn and Carmelo Mendoza, alleging they failed to use reasonable care and caution while driving.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on March 24, she was a passenger in the vehicle operated by Nunn, of East St. Louis, when they allegedly collided with Mendoza's vehicle.
As a result, Hawkins claims she suffered physical injuries and lost wages and incurred medical expenses.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to keep lookout for other motorists in the public roadway, failed to keep their vehicle under proper control and failed to stop, swerve or otherwise maneuver their vehicle in order to avoid the collision.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in an amount in excess of $50,000 plus cost of suit and for any other relief the court deems just and proper.
She is represented by Ronald J. Foster Jr. of Walton Telken Foster LLC in Edwardsville.
