ST. LOUIS — A insurance company is suing a motorist, citing alleged insufficient measures were taken to prevent an accident that resulted in injuries to its clients.

Permanent General Insurance Corp. filed a complaint on Nov. 29 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Frank Allen III alleging that he failed to maintain proper control of his motor vehicle.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 30, 2013 one of the plaintiff's insured sustained property damage and personal injuries. The plaintiff paid its insured the total amount of $25,371.59 and now seeks indemnification from the defendant for the amount paid for the loss. 

The plaintiff holds Allen responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to yield the right of way, failed to maintain careful lookout and negligently drove his vehicle into a lane of oncoming traffic.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury; and seeks damages in an amount to be determined at trial, costs of this action, and any further relief that the court may deem just and proper. He is represented by Debbie S. Champion and David P. Renovich of Rynearson, Suess, Schnurbusch & Champion LLC in St. Louis.
