ST. LOUIS — Three people are suing a school, its bus driver and another motorist, citing alleged negligent driving resulting in multiple collision.
Jeri Betts, Kyra Betts and Alexis Stanley filed a complaint in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Durham School Services LP, Shaniqua Moore and David Frazier, alleging the defendants failed their duty to exercise the highest degree of care for the safety of other persons upon the roadway.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on Sept. 17, 2015, Jeri Betts was driving in St. Louis when her vehicle was struck by a school bus driven by Moore. On Dec. 15, 2015, Jeri Betts was driving in St. Clair County, Illinois, when Frazier allegedly hit her vehicle. Kyra Betts and Stanley were passengers in the vehicle during the second crash. The plaintiffs claim the collisions caused severe injuries.
The plaintiffs hold the defendants responsible because they allegedly failed to maintain control of their vehicles, failed to keep a careful lookout and failed to operate their vehicles in a careful and prudent manner.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment in an amount that is fair and reasonable and in excess of $25,000 with costs incurred, and for further relief the court deems appropriate. They are represented by Nolan D. Drafahl of Goldblatt + Singer in St. Louis.
