EDWARDSVILLE — A motorist is suing another driver for allegedly causing an Edwardsville collision.
Teralandur Parthasarathy filed a complaint on June 23 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Lydia Weidner, alleging she failed to exercise reasonable care to other drivers on public roadways.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 29, 2016, he was driving southbound on Plum Street when he was struck by the defendant's vehicle. She claims the defendant attempted to turn left onto Governors Parkway she struck him.
As a result, Parthasarathy claims he suffered physical injuries, lost of normal life and incurred medical expenses.
The plaintiff alleges Weidner failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to obey a traffic control device and failed to sound a horn to warn the plaintiff of an impending collision.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in excess of $50,000, plus court costs and any other further relief the court deems just and proper.
He is represented by Michael P. Glisson and Timothy J. Chartrand of Williamson, Webster, Falb & Glisson in Alton.
