By Noddy A. Fernandez | Jun 26, 2017

EDWARDSVILLE — A passenger is suing the driver for allegedly crashing into a pole.

Louis P. Campbell filed a complaint on June 15 in Madison County Circuit Court against Sarah Mitchell, alleging she breached her duty to operate her vehicle in a careful manner.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 2, 2015, he was a passenger in a vehicle being operated by the defendant in a northerly direction on Old Alton Road near its intersection with Canham Lane in Chouteau Township. He claims he was injured when the vehicle struck a power line pole. 

As a result, the plaintiff allegedly incurred substantial medical expenses and suffered extreme physical and emotional pain. 

The plaintiff alleges Mitchell negligently drove the vehicle at a speed greater than what was warranted by the road condition and failed to keep a proper lookout.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount exceeding $50,000 plus costs of this action. 

She is represented by Thomas E. Hildebrand of the Thomas E. Hildebrand Law Office in Granite City.
