ST. LOUIS — A driver is suing a St. Louis motorist for allegedly striking her vehicle, which was stopped at a red light.
Debbie Croghan filed a complaint in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Rebecca Smith, alleging the defendant failed to operate her vehicle in a careful and prudent manner to avoid colliding with other vehicles.
According to the complaint, Croghan alleges that on June 16, 2014, she was stopped at a red light at 251 N. Kings Highway in St. Louis when her vehicle was allegedly struck in the rear by Smith's vehicle. As a result, Croghan claims she suffered physical injuries and was incurred expenses for medical care and treatment.
The plaintiff holds Smith responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to stop, swerve, reduce speed or take evasive measures to avoid the collision.
The plaintiff seeks judgment for an amount in excess of $25,000 for pre-judgment interest, costs expended and further relief the court deems just and proper. She is represented by Thomas E. Fagan of Wuestling & James LC in St. Louis.
