EDWARDSVILLE – An O'Fallon couple is suing a Troy motorist, alleging the defendant drove her vehicle into theirs, causing injuries.

Forrest S. Creson and Jo Ann Creson filed a lawsuit Dec. 22 in Madison County Circuit Court against Mary L. Vanecek of Troy, alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, on May 17, 2014, the Cresons were traveling in their vehicle southbound on South Lincoln Avenue in Madison County when Vanecek drover her vehicle into the side of the plaintiffs' vehicle, causing damage. 

The suit says the defendant's operation of the vehicle was negligent, including failing to keep her vehicle under control, failure to keep a proper lookout and failure to yield to the right of way.

As a result of the collision, the lawsuit states, the plaintiffs have expended money for medical bills and have sustained additional damages, including loss of enjoyment of life.

The Cresons each seek at least $50,000 plus court costs and attorney fees. They are represented by attorneys Bill T. Walker of Granite City and Dale M. Funk of O'Fallon.

Madison County Circuit Court case number 15-L-1656
