A St. Clair County woman accuses the driver of another car of rear-ending her while driving in East St. Louis.

Donnell L. Jones filed a lawsuit against Joshua R. Tungett on Feb. 18 in St. Clair County Circuit Court.

Jones says she was driving west on State Street on January 25. As she approached the intersection with 31st Street, Jones claims she was hit from behind by a car driven by Tungett.

Jones is suing for negligence and seeking more than $50,000 in damages for medical bills, lost wages and court fees.

She is represented by attorneys Thomas C. Rich and Kristina D. Cooksey, of Fairview Heights.
