A woman is suing after her vehicle was rear-ended near a certain Collinsville intersection.

Livonder Sanders filed a complaint Sept. 3 in Madison County Circuit Court against Elizabeth Carey, citing negligence.

On Feb. 17, 2014, the complaint states, Carey was driving eastbound on Reese Drive near its intersection with Johnson Hill road in Collinsville, when she rear-ended Sanders' vehicle.

The complaint states that Carey was negligent in following too closely, speeding, failing to keep a proper lookout, and failing to keep her vehicle under proper control.

As a result, Sanders sustained injuries to the head, neck, shoulders, back, spine, spinal cord, vertebrae, intevertebral discs, joints, skin, bones, muscles, tendons and other areas, and has incurred medical expenses.

Sanders seeks a judgment of more than $50,000, plus costs of the suit. Sanders is represented by Bruce E. Mattea of the Mattea Law Firm in Collinsville.
