An Illinois motorist is suing another driver, alleging the defendant caused a collision while attempting to make an illegal left-hand turn.
Mary Tenllado filed a lawsuit Dec. 22 in Madison County Circuit Court against Kathleen M. Biggs, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, on Dec. 27, 2013, Tenallado was driving her vehicle westbound on Beltline Road in Collinsville and, at the same time, Biggs attempted to make a left turn onto Beltine Road eastbound. However, she allegedly drove her vehicle into the path of the plaintiff, and collided with Tenllado's vehicle, the suit says.
The lawsuit states as a result of the defendant's negligent acts or omissions, the plaintiff was seriously injured and was required to seek extensive medical treatment. She has spent and will continue to spend money on said treatment, expects to suffer pain and anguish and has seen her income reduced because she couldn't work, the suit says.
Tenllado seeks damages in excess of $50,000, losses and damages, court costs and any other relief the court finds just. She is represented by attorneys Peter M. Westhoff and Thomas P. Duggan of Duggan & Westhoff LLC in Imperial, Mo.
