Janet O'Halloran filed a complaint on Oct. 26 in the Madison County Circuit Court against Sarah Wilkening, also known as Sarah Hartung, and Blake Hartung, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Nov. 9, 2016, she was traveling on Interstate 255 near milepost 25.6 approaching Horseshoe Lake Drive when the Wilkening struck the rear of her vehicle, causing her to hit the guardrail.
She claims she suffered injuries which resulted in loss of quality of life and economic benefits.
