BELLEVILLE — An O'Fallon driver claims another motorist caused a crash while attempting to turn left onto Dean Avenue.
Kimberly Gillespie filed a complaint on July 14 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Richard Munro, alleging he failed to follow a traffic control device.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 7, 2012, she was driving westbound on West Highway 50 near the intersection of Dean Avenue. She claims the defendant attempted to make a left turn from West Highway 50 onto Dean Avenue while his traffic control device was still showing solid green, causing a collision.
As a result, Gillespie claims she suffered serious, painful, and permanent injuries and incurred medical expenses.
The plaintiff alleges Munro failed to exercise the highest degree of care to keep a careful lookout and failed to yield the right-of-way.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in such sum over $50,000 for loss and damage, plus costs and such other and further relief as the court deems just and proper.
She is represented by R. Tyson Mutrux of The Mutrux Law Firm, LLC in St. Louis.
