A Madison County woman has filed suit against a Granite City woman who she says t-boned her vehicle while attempting to make a left-hand turn.

Casey B. Young filed a lawsuit June 23 in Madison County Circuit Court against Brittney L. Valencia.

Young says she was driving on Saint Louis Street in Edwardsville on June 16 when Valencia, who was attempting to make a left-hand turn off Maple Street and onto Saint Louis Street, t-boned Young's vehicle.

Because of the accident, Young sustained injuries to her head, neck and back.

Valencia failed to stop, swerve or slow down to avoid a collision and failed to keep a proper lookout.

Young is seeking a judgment of more than $50,000, plus other relief the court deems just.

Thomas G. Maag and Peter J. Maag of Wendler Law in Edwardsville will be representing her.

Madison County Circuit Court case number: 09-L-657.
