Rear-end accident in Bethalto is subject of suit
A Madison County woman is suing the driver she says was responsible for a rear-end crash that allegedly injured her and her daughter.
Lauren Kizer, individually and on behalf of her minor daughter, filed a lawsuit Sept. 28 in Madison County Circuit Court against Casey L. Mikhayel.
Kizer says she was driving with her daughter north on South Moreland Road in Bethalto in September 2010 when the vehicle they were in was allegedly hit from behind by Mikayel. Kizer says she and her daughter were hurt in the crash and required medical care.
Kizer accuses Mikhayel of negligence and is asking to be paid more than $150,000 in damages to compensate for medical bills, loss of income and court costs.
Kizer is represented by attorney Jane Unsell of Wood River.
