Pizza Hut sued over delivery driver's Highland accident
A woman claims she sustained injuries after a Pizza Hut delivery driver struck her vehicle.
Elizabeth M. Perry filed a lawsuit Feb. 13 in Madison County Circuit Court against Patrick A. Maurer and Pizza Hut.
In her complaint, Perry alleges she was driving near a stoplight at 1000 Laurel Street in Highland on Feb. 28, 2010, when Maurer, who was operating his vehicle near the same stop light, struck her vehicle.
In addition to her injuries, Perry experienced pain, incurred medical costs and lost earnings because of the collision, according to the complaint.
Perry blames Maurer, who was driving for Pizza Hut at the time of the collision, for causing the accident, saying he negligently failed to maintain a proper lookout, drove too fast, drove without adequate brakes and failed to properly apply his brakes, among other negligent actions.
In her two-count complaint, Perry is seeking a judgment of more than $100,000, plus costs.
Chris Kolker of Kolker Law Offices in Belleville will be representing her.
Madison County Circuit Court case number: 12-L-201.
