ST. LOUIS – Three passengers allege they were injured when the vehicle they were traveling in was struck by a driver who failed to yield.
Amanda Scott-Porter, Aniya Elrod and Christopher Elrod filed a complaint on Oct. 8 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against David Johnson alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on Aug. 1, 2017, they were passengers in a vehicle that was struck by defendant's automobile near the intersection of Sidney and Texas streets in St. Louis. They allege they sustained injuries to multiple parts of their bodies and incurred medical expenses and lost wages as a result of the collision.
The plaintiffs hold Johnson responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to be attentive while driving; failed to maintain a careful lookout; drove while his license was suspended, canceled or revoked; and failed to yield to the right-of-way at a stop sign.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek monetary damages in excess of the jurisdictional limits of the court, and all further relief that the court may deem just and proper. They are represented by Lorenzo A. Hester and Melissa Griffeth of The Hester Group LLC in St. Louis.
