A Madison County man says he was hurt when another driver crashed into him at an intersection in Pontoon Beach.

Albert R. Holland filed a lawsuit June 22 against Seth R. Carter in Madison County Circuit Court.

According to the complaint, Holland was driving his Chevy Impala south on Route 111 in June 2011. As he tried to turn left onto Pontoon Road, Holland alleges Carter, driving north on Route 111, failed to yield and drove into the intersection. Holland says Carter crashed into the passenger side of his car.

Holland accuses Carter of negligence and asks for more than $50,000 in damages for medical expenses and court costs.

He is represented by attorney Lanny Darr of Alton.
