A Belleville woman is suing a Lebanon driver, alleging her negligence caused an accident that left the plaintiff severely injured.

Sharon L. Siewert filed a lawsuit on Sept. 21 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Jessica D. Adams of Lebanon, alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, on Aug. 9, 2014, the vehicle driven by Jessica D. Adams rear-ended Siewert's vehicle on state Route 158 at East Highway 50 in O'Fallon, causing her bodily harm.

The suit says Adams was negligent by failing to keep a lookout on the roadways, speeding, failing to properly brake and reduce speed and failing to keep her vehicle under control.

The plaintiff alleges she incurred injuries to her neck, back and shoulder area, as well as aggravating pre-existing injuries.

Siewert seeks more than $50,000 as well as cost of suit. She is represented by attorney James R. Williams of Williams, Caponi, & Associates in Belleville.

St. Clair County Circuit Court case number 15-L-537.
