EDWARDSVILLE — A motorist is suing another driver for allegedly causing a crash on Edwardsville Road.
Regina Shafer filed a complaint on Sept. 14 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Rebecca Rushing, alleging she failed to exercise ordinary care to avoid a collision.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Sept. 30, 2016 she was driving a vehicle westbound on Edwardsville Road at or near its intersection with Buckeye Drive when the defendant caused her vehicle to strike the plaintiff's vehicle.
She claims she sustained injuries to her right shoulder, neck, and right hand.
The plaintiff holds Rushing responsible because the defendant allegedly negligently drove at an excessive speed, failed to maintain careful lookout and failed to yield right of way.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages in a fair and reasonable amount, plus interest, costs and all further relief that may be appropriate. She is represented by Brent E. Labovitz of Kolker and Labovitz in Clayton, Mo.
