Woman accuses driver for allegedly causing crash

By Michael Abella | Feb 27, 2017

EDWARDSVILLE — A Madison County motorist is suing another driver, alleging the defendant's negligence caused a crash.

Shari Kruse filed a complaint Feb. 21 in Madison County Circuit Court against Brianna Laleman, alleging the defendant was operating her vehicle at a high rate of speed.

According to the complaint, on April 7, 2016, Kruse was driving a 2011 Kia Optima west on state Route 40 in St. Jacob Township when Laleman allegedly collided with the rear of her vehicle.

As a result of the collision, Kruse claims she sustained severe and permanent injuries both externally and internally. 

The plaintiff alleges Laleman failed to keep a careful lookout, failed to maintain proper control of her vehicle and failed to reduce speed or stop her vehicle to avoid a collision.

Kruse seeks trial by jury, judgment exceeding $50,000, plus costs of suit.

She is represented by attorney Ronald S. Motil of Beatty & Motil in Glen Carbon.
