Jennifer Stone field a suit Nov. 20 in Madison County Circuit Court against Sydney Curtis, citing negligence.
According to the complaint, on Feb. 25, 2013, around 3:40 a.m., Stone and Curtis were driving north on state Route 109, just north of Bethel Road in Mississippi Township in Jersey County when Curtis lost control of the car, as the car ran off the road and rolled over.
