Janae Edmonson filed cases against St. Louis City and the reckless driver Daniel Riley, and Elizabeth Smith, over Feb. 18, 2023, car collision that made her a double amputee teen.
Janae Edmonson is a high school student from Tennessee. She visited St. Louis City for a volleyball tournament. When she crossed a downtown intersection, cars driven by Daniel Rile and Smith collided and hit her.
