What I find amazing is....
157 and N. Water Street meet nowhere together.
There are no ramps coming from or going to N. Water Str.
N. Water Street is the street across from Huck's on RT 3 by the apartments and is less then a block long. Then they wait 18months to sue them after the accident. I've been hit in enough accidents to know you don't wait 18months to get a lawyer for your pain & suffering. Sounds like a couple of broke ass people who don't know where they are scamming & squeezing a buck outta someone.

Three East St. Louis residents allege they sustained injuries after a driver rear-ended their vehicle.

Gary Davidson and Arlexia Flowers filed a lawsuit April 27 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Leonard F. Roberts and Terri A. Roberts.

In their complaint, Davidson and Flowers allege they and minor Angela Davidson were riding in a vehicle heading north on or near Camp Jackson Road on the ramp leading to North Water Street in Cahokia on Dec. 1, 2010, when Leonard Roberts rear-ended the vehicle.

In addition to their injuries, the plaintiffs endured pain and suffering, experienced disability, lost their normal lives and incurred medical costs because of the accident, according to the complaint.

They blame Leonard Roberts for causing the collision, saying he negligently drove too fast, allowed the vehicle to skid uncontrollably, failed to warn of his impending approach, failed to reduce his speed to avoid a collision and failed to inspect the vehicle for defects, among other negligent acts.

Terri A. Roberts is also named as a defendant because she negligently allowed Leonard Roberts to drive her vehicle, failed to inspect her vehicle for defects and failed to verify that the vehicle was free of defective conditions, the suit states.

In their two-count complaint, the plaintiffs seek an unspecified judgment in excess of the minimum jurisdictional limits of Jefferson County District Court, plus costs.
