A St. Clair County woman is suing a Belleville woman for allegedly crashing into her.

Franchessa Schauf filed a lawsuit March 7 against Mary O'Neal in St. Clair County Circuit Court.

Schauf says in April 2010 she was driving on South 47th Street and was trying to turn left onto North Belt West. Schauf claims O'Neal, who was driving on North Belt West, pulled out and crashed into the
side of her car.

Schauf accuses O'Neal of negligence and seeks more than $50,000 in damages for medical bills, lost wages and court fees.

She is represented by attorney Lynn A. Fischer of Clayton.
