ST. LOUIS – A minor alleges she was injured in an auto accident caused by a Washington, Missouri woman who improperly changed lanes.
Jayrissa Grayson, a minor by and through her next friend and mother, Corsander Thompson, filed a complaint on Dec. 17 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Jacqueline Lynn Moreland alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 1, 2016, Grayson was injured as a passenger in a motor vehicle accident that occurred on South Grand Boulevard. The suit states the defendant's vehicle struck the left side of the vehicle the plaintiff was in and then fled the scene.
Grayson alleges she suffered serious and permanent injuries to her neck and back.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant in an amount of more than $25,000, plus costs and all other relief that is just and fair. She is represented by Thomas Traube of Sorrell & Traube in St. Louis.
