ST. LOUIS — A moped driver is suing a vehicle driver, citing alleged failure to operate the vehicle in a careful manner.
Patrick Stoddard filed a complaint Aug. 18 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Amanda Colegrove, alleging she failed to exercise the highest degree of care while operating her vehicle.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 13, while stopped in traffic on Northbound Grand Avenue in St. Louis, his moped was struck when the defendant attempted to change lanes. The passenger side of her vehicle allegedly collided with his moped.
As a result, Stoddard claims he sustained severe, painful and permanent injuries, intense physical therapy and incurred medical expenses.
The plaintiff holds Amanda Colegrove responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to pay attention to the roadway, failed to keep a careful and diligent lookout and drove at an excessive rate of speed.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in a just and reasonable sum in excess of $25,000, with costs expended and for other relief the court deems proper. He is represented by Gerard B. Schneller of Wilkins Schneller Law in St. Louis.
