A Madison County woman says she was hurt when the car she was riding in was rear-ended at an Edwardsville intersection.

Ellen K. George filed a lawsuit Sept. 18 against Sidney J. Flyte in Madison County Circuit Court.

George was a passenger in a car being driven east on Center Grove Road, according to the petition. As she neared the intersection of Illinois Highway 159, George claims Flyte crashed into the back of the vehicle in which she was riding. George accuses Flyte of negligence and asks for more than $50,000 in damages for medical expenses and court fees.

George is represented by attorney Kenneth B. Beljanski of Fairview Heights.
