A woman playing a slot machine at the Casino Queen is seeking more than $50,000 from the East St. Louis casino because she was struck in the knee by an employee carrying a box.

Sheri Lowery claims she sustained ankle and back injuries from an incident that took place on Aug. 7, 2003.

According to Lowery, Casino Queen failed to keep a proper lookout for customers when moving objects through aisles of the gambling machines.

Lowery, who filed suit Aug. 1 in St. Clair County, claims she incurred substantial medical bills and lost wages.

She is represented by Charles Stegmeyer of Belleville.
