Chonda Hirons is suing the driver and owner of a vehicle that rear-ended her car at a Belleville intersection on Nov. 20, 2006.

Hirons, who was eastbound on Mount Pleasant Lane in her 1995 Buick Regal and stopped at the intersection of Frank Scott Parkway, claims Jacqueline Welker struck her from behind.

Welker, who was operating a 1998 Sunfire owned by co-defendant Cynthia Cremeens, allegedly failed to keep a proper lookout for other vehicles, according to the complaint filed Aug. 12 in St. Clair County Circuit Court.

Hirons claims the accident aggravated a pre-existing medical condition.

She is seeking payment for disability, pain and suffering, medical bills and lost income.

She is represented by Kevin Boyne of Belleville.
