EDWARDSVILLE — A driver is suing another motorist for allegedly causing a collision.

Melissa M. Bench filed a complaint on Jan. 23 in Madison County Circuit Court against Liliana S. Muller, alleging the motorist negligently failed to stop or reduce speed to avoid a collision.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Feb. 28, 2015, she was operating her vehicle traveling southbound on Illinois State Route 159 near its intersection with North Main Street when the defendant negligently caused a collision with the plaintiff's vehicle.

As a result, the plaintiff claims she sustained various and permanent injuries that required medical care and treatment.

The plaintiff alleges the defendant failed to yield right of way, operated her vehicle at a speed greater than reasonable and failed to maintain careful lookout.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in excess of $50,000, plus her costs for this suit.

She is represented by William A. Boker of The Mattea Law Firm in Collinsville.
