ST. LOUIS – A Bi-State bus passenger alleges he was injured when the bus went off of the road and into a ditch in St. Louis.
Willie Suarez filed a complaint on July 2 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against Bi-State Development Agency of the Missouri-Illinois Metropolitan District, Reinhold Electric Inc. and John Doe driver alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 8, 2015, he was a passenger in a Bi-State bus driven defendant Doe at or near the intersection of Hamilton and Page avenues in St. Louis when the bus suddenly left the road and crashed into a ditch where defendant Reinhold was performing construction work. He alleges he sustained injuries to his head, neck and back and incurred damages of more than $25,000 as a result of the incident.
The plaintiff holds Bi-State Development Agency of the Missouri-Illinois Metropolitan District, Reinhold Electric Inc. and John Doe driver responsible because Bi-State and John Doe allegedly failed to keep a careful lookout and Reinhold failed to provide place warning cones in a manner where they were readily visible to motorists.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against each defendant for damages of more than $25,000, plus costs and all further relief as the court deemed just and equitable. He is represented by Kyle Kleefus of Law Offices of Derald L. Gab PC in St. Louis.
