A case involving a multi-car accident and the passenger in a RideFinders van is set to open Monday in Madison County at 9 a.m, according to the court docket.

Circuit Judge Dennis Ruth is presiding.

Plaintiff Dorothy Kinnard originally sued Curtis Glover, his employer Davidson Surface Air Inc., Ronda Sechrest, Raymond Sparks, the Madison County Metro East Transit District, and the Agency for Community Transit over injuries she claims to have suffered when the RideFinders van she was riding in was struck by Sechrest's 2003 Pontiac in September 2006.

A stipulation for dismissal was filed Sept. 4 to dismiss Glover and Davidson.

According to her complaint, Kinnard was riding in a van driven by Sparks on I-70 eastbound when it was struck by Sechrest. Sechrest had been struck in turn by Glover's tractor trailer. The Madison Metro East Transit District and Agency for Community Transit are the sponsors of the RideFinders program.

Kinnard is seeking damages on multiple counts of at least $50,000 and costs. She seeks damages for disability, disfigurement, pain, lost income, and medical bills.

Several counterclaims have also been filed in the suit.

Kinnard is represented by Kevin Boyne.

Sechrest is represented by Stephen Mudge.

Sparks is represented by Donald Ohl. Ohl also represents the Metro East Transit District and Agency for Community Transit.

The case was originally assigned to now retired Madison County Circuit Judge Nicholas Byron.

The case is Madison case number 07-L-776.
