A St. Clair County man is suing the driver of a car that allegedly crossed the center line and crashed into him.

Vernon Christ filed the lawsuit against Ann Oller April 26 in St. Clair County Circuit Court.

Christ says he was driving west on U.S. Highway 50 in Lebanon on March 14. He alleges Oller, driving east, crossed over into his lane and crashed into him.

Christ accuses Oller of negligence and asks for more than $50,000 in damages for medical bills, loss of income and court fees.

Attorney Bruce R. Cook, of Belleville, is representing Christ.
