ST. LOUIS — A motorist is suing another motorist, citing alleged negligence.
William Van Dee filed a complaint on Jan. 2 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Timothy Charles Hill alleging that he failed to exercise the highest degree of care while operating a motor vehicle.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 28, 2016 he was driving a motor vehicle westbound on Interstate 64 near its intersection with McCausland Avenue when the left front side of the defendant's vehicle came into contact with his vehicle.
The plaintiff holds Hill responsible because the defendant allegedly negligently operated a motor vehicle while intoxicated, failed to maintain careful lookout and failed to yield the right of way.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury; and seeks damages of more than $25,000, plus costs expended for this action, and any other relief as the court may find just and proper. He is represented by Ely Hadowsky of Brown & Brown LLP in St. Louis.
