ST. LOUIS – A driver alleges a Florissant woman collided with his vehicle as she drove on the shoulder/bike lane of a highway to avoid stopped traffic.
Dewey Armstrong filed a complaint on June 15 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Tamika White alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 15, 2017, he was injured when the defendant caused her vehicle to crash with plaintiff's vehicle on Gravois Avenue at its entrance to Highway 55. The suit states the defendant went around stopped traffic via the shoulder/bike lane and collided with the plaintiff as he was turning to the Highway 55 entrance.
He alleges he suffered pain and suffering, emotional distress, mental anguish and lost wages as a result of the collision.
The plaintiff holds White responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to yield to traffic, failed to keep a proper lookout and negligently traveled at an excessive speed.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant of more than $25,000, with interest, costs and all other relief that are necessary and proper. He is represented by Benjamin J. Sansone of Sansone Sumner & Lauber in Clayton.
