A Madison County couple is suing a Collinsville motorist following an automobile accident that left allegedly them injured and limited in their ability to work.
Aaron Campbell and Kathleen Campbell filed a lawsuit on Nov. 16 in Madison County Circuit Court against Christine M. Macios of Collinsville.
According to the complaint, on March 21, 2014, Kathleen Campbell was driving northbound on state Highway 157. Macios was also driving in the same direction on the same highway, the suit says, following a vehicle that was following the Campbells' vehicle.
The lawsuit states Macios collided with the first vehicle, which then was pushed into the Campbells' vehicle, causing accidents and injuring the plaintiffs. In addition to failing to drive in a safe manner and to obey all travel signals, the suit says the defendant was also driving under the influence of alcohol.
As a result, the lawsuit says, both plaintiffs were injured and sought medical care, incurring bills, for those injuries, have required medications as a result, and likely will in the future and have been prevented from working and will be limited in the future.
The Campbells seek at least $50,000, plus court costs. They are represented by attorney Richard G. Reed of Reed and Bruhn in Belleville.
Madison County Circuit Court case number 15-L-1482.
