CHICAGO — A man's family is suing a driver, identified as William Ingram, and his employer, M&M Transport Services, Inc., after the plaintiff's relative was killed in a traffic crash on Interstate 90 near Cumberland Avenue, allegedly caused by Ingram's use of prescription drugs and his use of his mobile phone while driving.

Jesus Sanchez, as independent administrator of the estate of Rufino H. Sanchez filed a complaint on Feb. 6, in the Cook County Circuit Court against the defendants alleging Ingram failed to exercise ordinary care while operating his vehicle, causing it to collide with the motor vehicle being operated by Rufino Sanchez.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, on May 13, 2013, Sanchez was killed in the collision. The plaintiff alleges the defendants' employee allegedly was using his cellular telephone while operating his vehicle, and was allegedly drowsy and dizzy from his use of two prescription drugs.

The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $50,000, plus court costs and any further relief this court grants. He is represented by Dean J. Caras, of Chicago.
