EDWARDSVILLE – A motorist is seeking damages over alleged injuries sustained in a Madison County auto accident.
Joyce Stunson filed a complaint on Dec. 18 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Daniel Kleier, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Jan. 14, 2016, she was lawfully driving a motor vehicle and was stopped on Highway 157 when Kleier struck her vehicle from behind.
As a result, she claims she suffered whiplash and head and neck pain that prevented her from doing her usual duties and affairs.
