BELLEVILLE — A driver is suing another motorist for allegedly causing a collision while the plaintiff was stopped at a stop sign in Belleville.
Haamiah S. Nicholson filed a complaint on May 10 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Ariana M. Mosley, alleging that she failed to exercise due care and caution in the operation and control of her vehicle to avoid injuring others.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on March 24, 2016, she was driving north on Anderson Lane and stopped at the stop sign at Lebanon Avenue when Mosley allegedly struck the plaintiff's vehicle.
As a result, Nicholson claims she suffered serious personal injuries, pain and anguish and was made to expend large sums of money for medical care.
The plaintiff alleges Mosley failed to give audible warning with the horn, failed to keep a proper and sufficient lookout for other vehicles, failed to apply the brakes and failed to yield the right-of-way.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for damages greater than $50,000, plus costs of suit and for such other or further relief as the court considers just and proper.
She is represented by Mark C. Scoggins and Anthony P. Gilbreth of Crowder and Scoggins LTD in Columbia.
