ST. LOUIS – A driver alleges a distracted High Ridge man caused a head-on collision in St. Louis.
Nashan D. Alexander filed a complaint on April 11 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Matthew T. Wittman alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 28, 2017, he was driving a 2007 Toyota Camry traveling southbound on Gravois Road near its intersection with Christy Boulevard when the defendant caused a head-on collision with his vehicle. He alleges he sustained injuries to his cervical spine, left shoulder and right lower leg and incurred medical expenses of more than $16,232.21 as a result of the collision.
The plaintiff holds Wittman responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to yield to the right of way, failed to maintain a careful lookout and drove while distracted.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages of more than $25,000, plus interest, costs and any further relief as the court deems just and proper. He is represented by James N. Guirl II of Guirl Law Firm in St. Louis.
