A Madison County woman says a man driving his work truck ran a red light and crashed into her in Collinsvile.

Leona H. Peskar filed a lawsuit Sept. 26 in Madison County Circuit Court against Keller Farms Inc. and its employee, Brandon L. Daniels.

According to the lawsuit, Peskar was stopped at a red light at the Orchard Shopping Center parking lot in May 2010 waiting to turn onto Illinois Route 159. Peskar claims Daniels, driving north on Route 159, failed to stop at the light that had turned red. Daniels, who was driving a Keller Farms vehicle, allegedly ran the red light and crashed the truck into Peskar.

Peskar accuses Daniels and Keller Farms of negligence and asks for more than $100,000 in damages for medical bills, loss of income and court costs.

She is represented by attorney John H. Leskera of Collinsville's Leskera Law Firm.
