A man involved in a motorcycle crash and his wife have sued the woman allegedly responsible for the accident.
William and Jessica Beers filed a lawsuit filed March 13 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Laurie Wallace.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 29, 2014, Willaim Beers was driving his Harley Davidson motorcycle on state Highway 127, approaching Ava Road and, at the same time, Wallace was driving her 2004 Chevy Cavalier on Ava Road approaching Highway 127.
