An Aviston woman claims her minor daughter sustained extensive head, back, neck, shoulder, chest and limb injuries after a driver collided with her car head-on.

Lisa Netemeyer filed a lawsuit Sept. 7 in Madison County Circuit Court against Tim Rogier.

In her complaint, Lisa Netemeyer alleges her minor daughter, Brittany Kuhl, drove west on Iberg Road near its intersection with Yorkshire Road/Zilles Road in Highland on June 4 at about 9:04 a.m. Suddenly, Tim Rogier's minor daughter, Emily Rogier, who was driving north on Zilles Road, entered oncoming traffic and drove the front end of her vehicle into the driver's side of Kuhl's, according to the complaint.

In addition to her injuries, Kuhl became sick, sore, lame, disabled and disordered and suffered disability because of the collision, the suit states. She also lost her normal life and experienced pain and suffering, the complaint says.

Netemeyer blames Emily Rogier for causing the collision, saying she negligently drove too fast, disobeyed a traffic signal, entered an intersection at an unsafe time, failed to keep a proper lookout, failed to see Kuhl's vehicle and failed to keep her vehicle under proper control.

In her two-count complaint, Netemeyer seeks a judgment of more than $100,000, plus costs.

Daniel R. Price of Wham and Wham Attorneys in Centralia will be representing her.

Madison County Circuit Court case number: 11-L-887.
