Lawsuit Ruling Concerning Granite City Crash

There has been a summary judgment ruling regarding a Madison County Circuit Court lawsuit involving a collision in Granite City between two vehicles, one of which was driven by an EMT.

The lawsuit is summarized in the November 13, 2014 Madison Record article titled “EMT not liable for third party’s auto accident injuries; Mudge enters summary judgment for US Steel and driver.”

An excerpt from the article:

Plaintiff Charles Martin sued last December, claiming he was driving a 2007 Pontiac Montana east on Illinois Route 203 in Granite City and was traveling through a green light when Smith, who was driving south on 20th Street, drove through a red light. Smith struck Martin’s vehicle, resulting in Martin’s right foot injuries, as well as mental pain and anguish, according to the lawsuit.
