A woman says she was permanently injured in a car collision in Collinsville.

Markia Ivy filed a lawsuit on Sept. 15 in Madison County Circuit Court against Harold E. Miller.

Ivy says she was driving southbound near the intersection of Interstate 55/70 and Highway 157 in Collinsville when she was struck by a car driven by Miller who had just turned right after stopping at the stoplight.

In her suit, Ivy says Miller failed to obey the traffic light and yield the right of way to her vehicle. She also claims he neglected to keep a proper lookout and did not cautiously enter the intersection after stopping for the red light.

She says he operated recklessly by unsafely turning onto a highway and moving a stopped car. She blames him for not sounding his horn as a warning and exceeding speed safe for conditions.

Ivy says she suffered severe and permanent injuries and incurred medical bills. She claims lost wages and pain and suffering.

In her complaint, Wells seeks a judgment of more than $50,000, plus costs.

Brian M. Wendler of Wendler Law is representing her.

Madison County Circuit Court case number: 10-L-955.
