EDWARDSVILLE – A motorist is suing a Missouri driver, alleging negligence over injuries she says she received in a rear-end collision.
Elizabeth Mackey filed the suit March 4 in Madison County Circuit Court against William Gregory of Cedar Hill, Mo., alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, on April 13, 2015, Mackey was driving northbound on Montclair Avenue in Godfrey and was stopped in traffic. At the same time, the suit says, Gregory was also driving northbound and allegedly drove into the back end of the plaintiff's vehicle, causing her injuries.
The lawsuit states the defendant was negligent in driving too fast, failing to keep his vehicle under proper control, failing to keep a proper lookout, failing to reduce his speed and following too closely.
As a result, the complaint says, the plaintiff injured her neck, back and head, and she continues to suffer pain of body and mind, incur medical bills and lose money that she would otherwise be able to earn as an able-bodied person.
Mackey seeks at least $50,000 and court costs. She is represented by attorney Samuel A. Mormino Jr. of Mormino, Velloff & Snyder PC in Alton.
