EDWARDSVILLE — A motorist is suing another driver for allegedly turning left in front of her without proper care, causing a collision in Helvetia Township.
Mary A. Wolfe filed a complaint on Aug. 18 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Brian Boesser, doing business as St. Morgan Produce, and Hayden W. Smart, alleging they failed to operate and maintain a vehicle with reasonable care.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on June 2, she was driving northbound on State Route 160 near its intersection with Rosde Road in Helvetia Township when Smart, acting in the course and scope of his employment with Boeser, collided with her vehicle.
As a result, Wolfe claims she suffered severe injuries, pain, suffering, medical treatment and expenses.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to keep the vehicle under control and failed to yield right of way to a vehicle approaching from the opposite direction before turning left.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in an amount in excess of $50,000, plus costs of suit, and for such other and further relief as the court deems just and proper.
She is represented by Eric J. Calrson of Byron Carlson Petri & Kalb, LLC in Edwardsville.
