A St. Clair County woman says she and her children were hurt when they were rear-ended while driving in East St. Louis.
Sarah Spencer, individually and on behalf of four minor children, filed a lawsuit Feb. 13 against Jamilah Roland in St. Clair County Circuit Court.
Spencer was driving with her children east on Illinois Route 15 in February 2011, according to the complaint. As she crossed the overpass of Illinois Route 157 Spencer claims she was hit from behind by a car being driven by Roland. Spencer accuses Roland of negligence and asks for more than $250,000 in damages for medical bills, loss of income and court fees.
Attorney Derek M. Rudman of St. Louis represents Spencer and her children.
