A woman injured in a rear-end accident nearly seven years ago in Alton has filed suit in Madison County Circuit Court.

Elizabeth A. Nickell of Madison County states that on April 26, 2005, she was eastbound in the 1100 block of Milton Road, preparing to turn right into a commercial parking lot when defendant Kelly E. Langley allegedly drove her vehicle at a high rate of speed into the rear of Nickell's vehicle.

According to the complaint filed March 12, Langley failed to keep a proper lookout, drove too fast, failed to maintain control of her vehicle, failed to avoid the collision and failed to maintain adequate brakes to stop or slow her vehicle.

Nickell claims she suffered injuries to her head, neck, shoulders, arms, legs and throughout her body.

She is seeking in excess of $15,000 in damages plus costs of the suit.

Nickell is represented by Carol Cagle of Alton.

Madison County case number 12-L-311
