A Madison County woman is suing two drivers after she was allegedly hurt in a rear-end collision.

Carla S. Perry filed a lawsuit April 28 in Madison County Circuit Court against Sean G. Derrick and Brian L. Shubirg.

Perry says she was riding in a car being driven by Shubirg in May 2009. While they were driving north on Troy O'Fallon Road, Perry says Shubirg slowed down to make a left turn onto Kirsch Road. Perry says they were hit from behind by the car driven by Derrick.

Perry accuses both Derrick and Shubirg of negligence for failing to take the necessary actions to avoid the crash. She is asking each defendant for more than $50,000 in damages to compensate for medical bills, lost wages and court costs.

Attorney Mark S. Peebles of Belleville is representing Perry.
