BELLEVILLE — A passenger is suing drivers Tiffany D. Williams and Casey Crook, citing alleged negligence involving an April 2015 crash on Lebanon Avenue.
Eddie R. Diggs filed a complaint on April 4 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against the defendants alleging that they failed their duty to use reasonable care and caution while driving for the safety of others.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, on April 6, 2015, he was a passenger in a vehicle being driven westbound on Lebanon Avenue in Belleville by defendant Crook when they collided with the motor vehicle operated by defendant Williams in the same direction, near the intersection of North Belt East. As a result, Diggs claims he suffered physical injuries, lost wages and incurred medical expenses.
The plaintiff holds Williams and Crook responsible because they allegedly failed to keep a proper lookout for other traffic on the public roadway, failed to reduce speed and failed to keep their motor vehicles under proper control.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in an amount more than $50,000 plus costs of suit and for any other relief the court deems just and proper. He is represented by Micah S. Summers of Walton Telken Foster LLC in Edwardsville.
