ST. LOUIS – A cyclist is seeking more than $25,000 from a St. Louis woman after she allegedly struck him on a road in the city.
David Gordon filed a complaint on Dec. 21 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Shakeitha McKinney alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 21, 2018, he was riding his bicycle on Geyer Avenue at or near its intersection with South Broadway in St. Louis when the defendant struck him with her vehicle. He alleges he sustained injuries to his head, neck, back, shoulders and other parts of the body as a result of the collision.
The plaintiff holds McKinney responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to maintain control of her vehicle, failed to yield to the right of way and failed to maintain a careful lookout.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages of no less than $25,000, plus interest, costs, attorney's fees and any further relief that the court may deem proper and just. He is represented by William King Holland of Holland Injury Law LLC in Clayton.
