A Madison County woman says she was hurt when another driver crashed into the side of her car in Glen Carbon.

Lisa Peck filed a lawsuit Dec. 20 against Melvin Gusewelle in Madison County Circuit Court.

Peck says she was driving north on Illinois Route 159 in December 2011. Gusewelle, who was also driving north on Route 159 according to the complaint, allegedly tried to turn left at the intersection of Cottonwood Road and crashed into the side of Peck's car.

Peck says her neck, shoulders and back were hurt in the crash. She accuses Gusewelle of negligence and asks for more than $50,000 in damages for medical bills, loss of income and court costs.

Marleen M. Suarez of Collinsville represents Peck.
