BELLEVILLE – A passenger in a vehicle involved in a collision in Stookey Township alleges she was injured and is seeking damages.
Emily Paul filed a complaint on Aug. 16 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Deena Scott alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 19, 2015, she was passenger in a motor vehicle stopped at a red signal on southbound Frank Scott Parkway at its intersection with Belleville Crossings when defendant Scott's vehicle stuck the vehicle.
The plaintiff holds Scott responsible because the defendant allegedly drove the motor vehicle at a speed that was greater than reasonable and proper with regard to the traffic conditions, failed to keep adequate lookout and failed to stop or yield the right of way in compliance with the traffic signal erected at the intersection.
The plaintiff seeks judgment in a sum of more than $50,000, plus costs, and any other such relief as the court deems just and equitable. She is represented by Kenneth B. Beljanski and Jaye R. Lindsay of Brown & Brown LLP in Fairview Heights.
