BELLEVILLE — A driver is suing another motorist, alleging the defendant negligently caused a collision while running a red light.
Kathy Haywood filed a complaint on May 3 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Kimberly McGraw alleging that the defendant failed to operate her vehicle with ordinary care.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on June 26, 2015, she was struck by McGraw's vehicle while driving eastbound on Lebanon Road and approaching the State Route 161 intersection. She claims the defendant ran a red light.
As a result, Haywood claims she suffered physical injuries and required medical treatment costing in excess of $28,476.18.
The plaintiff alleges McGraw failed to keep a proper and careful lookout, failed to yield, stop or obey a traffic signal and failed to turn, swerve or otherwise maneuver the vehicle in order to avoid the collision.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an award of damages incurred, prejudgment interest, costs incurred and for such other and further relief as the court deems just and proper.
She is represented by Anthony S. Bruning, Anthony S. Bruning Jr. and Ryan L. Bruning of The Bruning Law Firm LLC in St. Louis.
