EDWARDSVILLE — Cargill claims a motorist was under the influence of drugs or alcohol when he caused a collision with one of the plaintiff's employees.
Cargill Inc., on behalf of Jesse Scott filed a complaint on Dec. 4 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Tyler Robertson, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 9, 2016, Scott was employed by Cargill when Robertson allegedly caused a collision on Illinois Route 143 near Lock and Dam Way in Alton.
The suit states that Scott suffered personal and permanent injuries that are pecuniary in nature.
The plaintiff holds Robertson responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to reduce speed, failed to keep a proper lookout and failed to use precautions to avoid the collision.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $50,000, plus costs and all further relief that is just and equitable. It is represented by Ian J, Fuller of Quintairos, Prieto, Wood & Boyer PA in Chicago.
