A Moro woman is accused of running a red light and causing a crash at an intersection in Bethalto.

Janice Hansen filed a lawsuit against Susan Yeager June 7 in Madison County Circuit Court.

Hansen says she was driving east on Illinois State Route 140 in June 2010. As she tried to cross the intersection of South Moreland Road, Hansen says Yeager, driving north on South Moreland Road, ran a red light and crashed into her.

Hansen is suing Yeager for negligence and asks for more than $50,000 in damages for medical bills, loss of income and court costs.

She is represented by attorney Ronald J. Foster Jr. of East St. Louis.
