EDWARDSVILLE — A driver and passenger are suing another motorist for allegedly causing an Alton collision.
Dartanya L. Scott and Tyrone Franklin filed a complaint on Jan. 15 in the Madison County Circuit Court against James T. Kroeger alleging he failed to keep his vehicle under proper control.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on Dec. 5, Scott and Franklin were in a 2015 Chevy Suburban traveling in a private parking lot near 1837 Homer Adams Parkway in Alton when Kroeger's vehicle collided with theirs.
The plaintiffs allege they suffered injuries that required medical treatment.
