EDWARDSVILLE — A woman is suing Taylor Irons and Mickey Gillespie, two motorists, for alleged taking insufficient measures to prevent injuries.
Nikki Hunter, mother and next friend of Mariah Hunter, filed a complaint on May 15 in the Madison County Circuit Court, alleging that the defendants failed to maintain proper control of their motor vehicles.
