Country Mutual Insurance Company has filed suit against Norman L. Cambron, alleging it was forced to pay medical bills of one of its insured clients after he got into a collision with Cambron.

Robert E. Engelmann was driving his 2007 Cadillac CTS west on Illinois Route 40 near its intersection with Hemlock in Highland on Jan. 8, 2007, when Cambron, who was driving his 2004 Hyundai Sante Fe in the same direction, rear-ended him, according to the complaint filed Dec. 29 in Madison County Circuit Court.

Country Mutual Insurance Company had insured Engelmann and was required to pay for his medical bills in excess of $50,000, the suit states.

It claims Cambron was negligent by failing to keep his vehicle under control, by failing to keep a proper lookout, by driving in an unreasonable manner, by driving too fast, by attempting to change lanes without properly signaling and by failing to stop his vehicle.

Cambron also negligently failed to avoid causing an accident and followed Engelmann's car too closely, according to the complaint.

Country Mutual Insurance Company is seeking a judgment in excess of $50,000, plus costs and other relief the court deems appropriate.

It is represented by Trenton A. Galetti of Reed, Armstrong, Gorman, Mudge and Morrissey in Edwardsville.

Madison County Circuit Court case number: 08-L-1222.
