A St. Clair County woman is suing the driver of the car that allegedly rear-ended her while crossing the Mississippi River.
Nancy Dugan filed a lawsuit against Sharon Ritzheimer June 10 in St. Clair County Circuit Court.
Dugan says she was driving her Chevrolet Malibu west across the Poplar Street Bridge in May 2010 when she was hit from behind by Ritzheimer's Dodge Caravan. Dugan claims the force of the crash caused her to hurt her neck and back.
Dugan accuses Ritzheimer of negligence and asks for more than $50,000 in damages for medical expenses and court costs.
Attorney Richard G. Reed of Belleville is representing Dugan.
