BELLEVILLE — A driver is suing a motorist for allegedly turning in front of him and causing a crash.
Larcell Jennings filed a complaint on July 3 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Shirley Emerson, alleging the defendant violated the traffic signal.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 15, 2016, he was driving through the intersection of North 79th street with a green light when Emerson attempted to make a left turn and allegedly crashed into the driver side of the plaintiff's vehicle.
As a result, Jennings sustained physical injuries and incurred medical expenses.
The plaintiff alleges Emerson failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to yield the right-of-way and drove at an excessive speed for the circumstances.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in an amount greater than $50,000, and for any further just and proper relief.
He is represented by Gary K. Burger of Burger Law, LLC in St. Louis.
