BELLEVILLE — A motorcyclist is suing a driver for allegedly drifting his employer's truck into the plaintiff's lane and side-swiping the motorcycle.
Ronnie Andrews filed a complaint on June 14 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Michael Henry and Sisbro, Inc., alleging Henry failed to operate his employer's vehicle with the highest degree of care and caution.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on March 20, 2017, he was driving in the right lane of Interstate 7 when Henry allegedly drifted his tractor trailer into the plaintiff's lane of travel, side-swiping his motorcycle.
As a result, Andrews claims he suffered physical injuries and doctor and hospital bills.
The plaintiff alleges Henry failed to keep proper lookout for other vehicles, failed to drive his vehicle in a single lane of travel, failed to yield the right of way to plaintiff.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in an amount greater than $50,000, plus costs of suit, and any other further relief the court deems just and proper.
He is represented by Lanny Darr of Darr Law Offices, Ltd. in Alton.
