EDWARDSVILLE – A motorist alleges another driver struck his vehicle when he slowed to turn into a parking lot in Edwardsville.

Carl J. Benson filed a complaint on July 10 in Madison County Circuit Court against Vera A. Stanch, alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 10, 2015, he was driving westbound on East Edwards Road when he slowed down to make a right-hand turn into a parking lot. He claims the defendant failed to yield and struck his vehicle. 

As a result, Benson claims his neck, back and spine were injured.

The plaintiff alleges Stanch failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to reduce speed of the vehicle, disobeyed a lawful traffic control device and failed to keep her vehicle under proper or any control.

The plaintiff seeks judgment of more than $50,000, plus costs of suit and such other and further relief as the court may deem just and proper. 

He is represented by Craig J. Jensen of MeyerJensen, PC in Alton.
