Linda Webster has filed suit against Helen Wetzel, alleging she was injured after a collision.

Webster was driving north on Frank Scott Parkway West in Belleville on Nov. 26, 2007, at about 3 p.m. when Wetzel, who was driving south on Frank Scott Parkway near its intersection with South 52nd Street, collided with her, according to the complaint filed Dec. 18 in St. Clair County Circuit Court.

Because of the accident, Webster was made sick, sore and lame, incurred medical costs and suffered pain and a loss of the ability to enjoy a normal life, the suit states.

Wetzel was negligent by failing to keep a proper lookout and by failing to yield to oncoming traffic, Webster claims.

Webster is seeking a judgment in excess of $50,000, plus costs.

She is represented by Jerald J. Bonifield of the Law Offices of Bonifield and Rosenstengel in Belleville.

St. Clair County Circuit Court case number: 08-L-642.
