ST. LOUIS — A motorist is suing a city and employee, citing alleged negligence.

Nicole Lujan filed a complaint in the St. Louis Circuit Court against the city of East St. Louis and Emeka Jackson, alleging that Jackson failed to exercise the highest degree of reasonable care for the safety of others on the road.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Jan. 23, she was driving a 2008 Honda Civic when Jackson, an employee of the city of East St. Louis, allegedly caused a crash. Lujan claims she sustained serious and permanent injuries to her head, neck and back. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because Jackson allegedly failed to maintain a careful lookout, failed to yield right of way and failed to reduce speed, stop or swerve to avoid a collision.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages in a fair and reasonable amount of more than $25,000, plus litigation costs and any further relief that the court may deem just and proper. She is represented by Robert S. Marlin and Sarah H. Hale of Ray B. Marglous PC in Clayton.
