The two-count suit, seeking in excess of $100,000 in damages, also lists Denault's daughter, Stephanie Denault, as a plaintiff.

According to the complaint filed Aug. 3 in St. Clair County Circuit Court, Long failed to reduce her speed, brake or sound her horn before striking Denault's stopped Ford Tempo.
