The Madison County Record Jul. 18, 2016, 2:40pm


EDWARDSVILLE — A Madison County motorist is suing two other drivers, alleging their negligence caused two car crashes.

Nicole Daniels-Garcia filed a lawsuit July 8 in Madison County Circuit Court against Brittany Jones of Country Club Hills and Angela Adams of Cottage Hills, alleging the two defendants failed to exercise reasonable care and caution for the safety of other motorists.

According to the complaint, on July 10, 2014, Daniels-Garcia was driving a 2009 Toyota Corolla eastbound along Edwardsville Road in Wood River when a 2014 Volkswagen Jetta, driven by Jones collided with the plaintiff's vehicle. The suit says Daniels-Garcia sustained severe injuries that resulted in great pain and mental anguish, medical expenses and future loss of gainful employment. The plaintiff alleges Jones failed to keep proper lookout, failed to keep her vehicle under control and failed to stop at stop sign.

The suit says Adams also was negligent in running her 2000 Mustang into the plaintiff's vehicle at the same time as well.

Daniels-Garcia seeks a trial by jury, and judgment against each defendant of more than $50,000, plus legal costs. She is represented by attorneys Patrick G. Johnson and Benjamin T. Stephens of Johnson Law Offices PC in Edwardsville.
