A woman claims she was injured when a truck driver collided into the rear of her car on the Frank Scott Parkway.

Jane A. Ford filed a lawsuit Nov. 9 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Jerry W. Caliper.

Ford was driving west on Frank Scott Parkway near the intersection of Old Collinsville Road in Swansea when she says a truck driven by Caliper collided with her.

Ford says Caliper failed to keep a proper lookout, followed too closely to the rear of her car and failed to slow down or swerve to avoid the collision.

She claims she suffered serious injuries resulting in permanent disability and great pain and suffering. She also claims significant medical costs.

In her complaint, Ford seeks more than $50,000 plus costs.

Attorney Bradley L. Badgley will be representing her.

St. Clair County Circuit Court case number: 10-L-587.
