BELLEVILLE — A woman is accused of driving too fast in a crash that took place in O'Fallon.
Beverly A. Parker filed a complaint April 24 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Kelly R. Neighbors alleging she breached her duty to operate a motor vehicle in a careful and prudent manner.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that May 17, 2016, she was driving south on North Seven Hills when the defendant allegedly rear-ended her vehicle. She claims she suffered severe injuries to her head, back, right shoulder, body and limbs.
The plaintiff holds Neighbors responsible because the defendant allegedly negligently operated her vehicle at a speed faster than reasonable, failed to keep a proper lookout, and failed to stop, slow down or swerve to avoid a collision.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant in a sum exceeding $50,000, plus costs of court.
She is represented by Charles W. Courtney Jr. of Courtney Clark Law PC in Belleville.
