BELLEVILLE – A Belleville driver and his passenger allege they were injured when another motorist struck their vehicle in St. Clair County.
Patrick McQuiad and Kristin Witter filed a complaint on July 14 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Henry O. Hairston, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, on Nov. 30, 2015, McQuaid was driving in a generally westerly direction on Carlyle Avenue at the intersection with Green Mount Road when the defendant struck his vehicle, injuring both McQuaid and Witter.
The plaintiffs allege Hairston failed to keep a proper lookout for other traffic upon the roadway, drove faster than reasonable, failed to yield the right-of-way and attempted to turn in front of the plaintiffs' vehicle.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment for a fair and just award of more than $50,000, plus costs of suit, and any other relief deemed just and proper.
They are represented by Jon E. Rosenstengel of Bonifield & Rosenstengel, PC in Belleville.
