A woman claims she suffered disability and disfigurement following a collision.

Audrey M. Solomon filed a lawsuit April 6 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Christopher C. Bunyan.

Solomon claims she stopped her 1999 Volkswagon Jetta at a red light at Old St. Louis Road at its intersection with South 74th Street in Belleville on April 22 when Bunyan, who drove a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado behind Solomon, struck her vehicle.

In addition to disability and disfigurement, Solomon incurred medical costs, experienced pain and suffering and lost income, according to the complaint.

Solomon blames Bunyan for causing the accident, saying he negligently drove in excess of the speed limit, drove too fast, failed to keep a proper lookout and failed to use ordinary care.

In her complaint, Solomon seeks actual damages of more than $50,000, plus costs.

Kevin Boyne of Belleville will be representing her.

St. Clair County Circuit Court case number: 11-L-179.
