ST. LOUIS – A driver alleges she was injured in a collision caused by another driver changing lanes without warning.
Aleka Stephens filed a complaint on June 13 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Grace Nyirambeyeyi alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 8, 2017, she was in a motor vehicle heading north on Grand Boulevard in St. Louis when the defendant changed lanes and struck her vehicle. She alleges she sustained severe and permanent injuries to her cervical spine, thoracic spine, right knee and shoulder as a result of the collision.
The plaintiff holds Nyirambeyeyi responsible because the defendant allegedly drove her vehicle at an excessive speed, failed to keep proper lookout and failed to yield to the right of way.
The plaintiff seeks damages in excess of the minimum jurisdictional limits of the court and any further relief as the court deems just and proper. She is represented by Brian Stokes of The Stokes Law Office in St. Louis.
