BELLEVILLE — A man is suing a motorist for allegedly causing a collision in a work zone.

Joseph Nassif filed a complaint on July 17 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Carol Clark, alleging she failed to operate her vehicle in a careful manner.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 25, 2016, he was driving in a westerly direction to the south of the intersection between I-64, I-55 and I-70 and was slowed for congestion in a work zone when his vehicle was struck in the rear by Clark's vehicle. 

As a result, Nassif claims he suffered physical injuries, mental anguish and incurred medical expenses. 

The plaintiff alleges Clark failed to keep her vehicle under proper control, failed to reduce speed to maintain a safe speed while in a work zone and failed to keep a proper lookout for the vehicle in front of her.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in a sum in excess of $50,000, plus costs of action and any other further relief to which the court deems just and proper. 

He is represented by Bruce N. Cook of Cook, Ysursa, Bartholomew, Brauer & Shevlin, LTD. in Belleville.
