ST. LOUIS – A MetroLink passenger alleges she injured her back in a fall on the train when the driver started moving before she found her seat.

Aurora Bell filed a complaint on Dec. 19 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Bi-State Development Agency, doing business as Metro, alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 20, 2013, she was a passenger of defendant's MetroLink train on The Red Line and was caused to fall when the defendant's employee started the train before she found a seat. She alleges she sustained serious injuries to her back and incurred medical expenses of more than $10,000. 

The plaintiff holds Bi-State Development Agency responsible because the defendant's driver alleged failed to keep a careful lookout and failed to warn the plaintiff that the driver would suddenly start the train.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages of more than $25,000, plus costs. She is represented by William P. Hogan of William P. Hogan LLC in St. Louis.
