A woman has filed suit against the driver who she says collided with her vehicle.

Cynthia M. Crawford claims she was driving south on Humbert Road in Godfrey on July 26, 2009, when defendant Alysan F. Brown, who was driving in the same direction, struck her vehicle.

Because of the collision, Crawford suffered injuries to her back, neck, body, hips, legs and eyes; was hindered from attending to her usual affairs; and incurred medical costs, the suit filed Jan. 28 in Madison County Circuit Court states.

Brown negligently failed to reduce her speed, failed to keep a proper lookout and drove too fast, according to the complaint.

Crawford is seeking a judgment of more than $50,000, plus costs.

Joseph E. Hoefert of Alton will be representing her.

Madison County Circuit Court case number: 10-L-89.
