Fairview Heights woman sues over rear-end accident
A Fairview Heights woman is suing the driver of a car that allegedly rear-ended her.
Jayne E. Vartanian filed the lawsuit Jan. 25 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Lauren E. Markey.
Vartanian says she was driving west on Long Acre Drive in Fairview Heights in September 2009. As she approached the intersection of Brittney Drive, Vartanian says, she slowed down and was hit from behind by Markey.
Vartanian seeks more than $50,000 in damages for medical costs, loss of income and court fees. She is represented by attorney Jon E. Rosentengel of Belleville.
