BELLEVILLE — A motorist is suing another driver for allegedly causing a rear-end collision.
Anthony Brown filed a complaint on March 5 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Earl M. Smith, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on March 8, 2016, he was driving his 2000 Ford Explorer northbound of 6th Street near its intersection with St. Louis Avenue when the defendant struck the rear of his vehicle.
Brown claims he sustained injuries that resulted in loss of normal life, pain and suffering and medical expenses.
The plaintiff alleges the defendant failed to maintain careful lookout, followed his vehicle too closely and failed to stop or reduce speed to avoid a collision.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages of more than $50,000, plus court costs.
He is represented by Theresa Wybrow-Albano of Hausmann-McNally SC in Rockford.
