A woman has filed a personal injury suit against another woman on the behalf of her minor daughter, claiming her daughter was a passenger in a vehicle driven by the woman when she was involved in an accident.
According to the suit filed by Tina Womack on March 30 in Illinois’ St. Clair County Circuit Court, her daughter, Maci Broussard, was a passenger in the westbound vehicle driven by Alycia N. Dickey on April 9, 2007.
The suit says that at the time of the incident, Dickey was driving too fast, which caused the vehicle to leave the left side of the road, hit an embankment, and overturn multiple times.
The suit claims Broussard suffered severe and permanent injuries, disability, and disfigurement, and experienced physical and mental anguish because of the crash. Womack also says that her daughter incurred medical expenses and has been unable to perform her work an activities as she had in the past.
The suit alleges negligence on the part of Dickey for driving at an excessive speed, failure to maintain control of her vehicle, failure to reduce her speed, driving on the wrong side of the road, failure to brake, and failure to keep her vehicle on the proper side of the road.
Womack seeks damages in excess of $100,000 from the two-count suit.
