A Madison County woman says she was rear-ended on a Maryville road while waiting to make a turn.

Mari A. Byrd filed a lawsuit against Jessica M. Suguitan Aug. 15 in Madison County Circuit Court.

Byrd says she was driving east on Illinois Route 162 in September 2011 when stopped to turn left onto Santa Anita Drive. While at a standstill, Byrd claims she was hit from behind by a car driven by Suguitan. Byrd accuses the defendant of negligence and asks for more than $50,000 in damages for costs of medical treatment, loss of income and court fees.

Byrd is represented by attorney Jack Carey of Belleville.
