A woman has filed suit against the driver who she claims struck her vehicle as she waited at a stop sign.
Sheri L. Cerame claims she was driving on Vine Street in Alton on Dec. 15, 2010, at about 10:30 p.m. when she came to a stop at a stop sign. Suddenly, defendant Lisa Hrebec, who was driving on the same street, struck her vehicle, according to the complaint filed Dec. 12 in Madison County Circuit Court.
Because of the collision, Cerame suffered injuries to her knees; incurred medical costs; experienced damage to her psyche; and sustained great pain, suffering and disability, the suit states. She also lost her normal life and endured disfigurement, the complaint says.
Sheri L. Cerame’s husband, Richard Cerame, claims he lost his wife’s society, services, companionship and consortium.
Hrebec negligently failed to keep a proper lookout, drove too fast and failed to stop to avoid a collision, according to the complaint.
In their two-count complaint, the Cerames are seeking a judgment of more than $100,000, plus costs and other relief the court deems just.
Mark D. Schoon of Florissant, Mo., will be representing her.
Madison County Circuit Court case number: 12-L-2010.
