An Edwardsville woman is suing an Alton woman following a vehicle collision they were involved in.

Stephanie N. Runion filed a complaint Sept. 1 in Madison County Circuit Court against Mildred D. Hausman, alleging negligence.

On Dec. 28, 2013, the complaint states, Runion was a passenger in a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee, driven by Trisha A. Inman, moving westbound on West St. Louis Avenue in East Alton when Hausman, driving her 2006 Lincoln Navigator westbound on the same street, struck the rear of Inman's vehicle.

The complaint states Hausman was negligent in failing to keep a proper lookout, speeding, failing to brake and failing to yield the right-of-way.

As a result of the collision, Runion sustained injuries and medical bills and has been prevented from attending her usual duties and affairs.

Runion seeks a judgment of less than $50,000, plus costs of the suit. She is represented by Lanny Darr of the Darr Firm in Alton.

Madison County Circuit Court case number 15-L-1124
