Jeffrey D. Sizemore has filed suit against LeAnn M. Nance, alleging he was thrown about in his car after she collided with him.
Sizemore was driving a 1989 Ford Ranger north on Route 157 near its intersection with Beltline Avenue in Collinsville on May 15 when Nance, who was driving a 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier in the same direction, rear-ended him, according to the complaint filed April 24 in Madison County Circuit Court.
Because of the accident, Sizemore says he sustained severe injuries, suffered a hindered ability to work and earn money and incurred medical costs.
Nance was negligent by driving with disregard to the safety of other people, by following Sizemore's vehicle too closely, by driving too fast and by failing to maintain a proper lookout, according to the complaint.
Sizemore is seeking a judgment in excess of $50,000, plus costs.
He is represented by Randall P. Steele of Glen Carbon.
Madison County Circuit Court case number: 09-L-424.
