A Madison County couple is suing a woman from Effingham for allegedly running a red light and crashing into them.

Barbara Pearman and Barry Crenshaw filed a lawsuit against Diane Y. Mayhood March 15 in Madison County Circuit Court.

Pearman and Crenshaw say they were driving south on Highway 143 in May 2010. As they crossed the intersection of Sportsman's Road in Highland, they claim Mayhood, who was driving east, ran a red light and crashed into them.

Pearman and Crenshaw accuse Mayhood of negligence and ask for at least $100,000 in damages for medical expenses and court costs. They are represented by attorney Brian M. Wendler of Edwardsville.
