EDWARDSVILLE — A Madison County car owner is suing another motorist, alleging her negligence caused a car crash that injured the plaintiff.

Neal Hornbostel filed a lawsuit June 16 in Madison County Circuit Court against Samantha Hedlund, alleging negligence in that insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries.

According to the complaint, on June 16, 2015, when Hornbostel was driving southbound on state Route 4 in Madison County, he was run into by a car driven by Hedlund. The suit says he sustained injuries on his head, body and right knee, soft tissue damage to his shoulder and was made sick, lame, disoriented and disabled. 

The plaintiff alleges Hedlund failed to keep proper lookout for other vehicles, operated her vehicle at an excessive rate of speed and failed to apply her brakes in a timely fashion.

Hornbostel seeks a trial by jury and judgment of more than $50,000. He is represented by attorneys Thomas C. Rich, Kristina D. Cooksey and Mitchelle M. Rich of Fairview Heights.
