An Illinois woman is suing over injuries she allegedly sustained after the defendant's vehicle collided with hers in Highland.
Eleanor F. Nyman filed the suit on Dec. 21 in Madison County Circuit Court against Patricia Brown, who resides in Highland.
According to the complaint, on Oct. 7, the plaintiff was driving west on Beltline Road near its intersection with Gulfview Road in Collinsville. The defendant was also driving west along the same roadway, approaching the plaintiff's vehicle from the rear. The suit alleges that the defendant was speeding, was driving too close to the plaintiff's vehicle and failed to avoid colliding with the plaintiff's van.
Nyman alleges that she will need to seek future medical care to treat her injuries and has lost employment wages.
She seeks at least $50,000 plus court costs. She is represented by Brad L. Badgley of Belleville.
