A Montgomery County trucking company is being sued after one of its drivers allegedly crashed into another car in Alton.

Marcus A. Kennedy filed a lawsuit Nov. 15 in Madison County Circuit Court against Dale Williams Trucking Inc. and John S. Rickett.

Kennedy was driving east on Illinois Route 140 in November 2011, according to the complaint. Kennedy says Rickett, working for Dale Williams Trucking, was driving west on Route 140 and allegedly crossed the center line. 

Kennedy contends his back and neck were hurt in the crash. He accuses the trucking company and its driver of negligence and asks for more than $100,000 in damages for lost wages, medical expenses and costs of the lawsuit.

Attorney Gregory M. Tobin of East Alton represents Kennedy.
