EDWARDSVILLE — A driver is suing another motorist for allegedly causing a multiple-car collision in Edwardsville in April 2015.
Debra A. Augsburger filed a complaint on April 3 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Nicholas R. Woloszyn, alleging he failed to operate and control his vehicle in a safe manner to avoid collision.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 21, 2015, she stopped her vehicle facing east on Illinois State Route 157 at or near its intersection with South University Drive in Edwardsville. At that time, the defendant turned left and collided into a third vehicle traveling north on SR 157, causing the third vehicle to collide with her car.
As a result, Augsburger claims she suffered physical injuries and lost wages and incurred medical expenses.
The plaintiff alleges Woloszyn failed to maintain a proper lookout for other motor vehicles, failed to yield the right of way and failed to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in an amount in excess of jurisdiction of the court plus costs and any other further relief the court deems just.
She is represented by Laura A. Cole of Smith, Mendenhall, Selby and Cole in Alton.
