An O'Fallon woman is suing over claims she was injured in a collision at the intersection of Grimmig Road and North Illinois Street.

Bernice King filed a lawsuit Aug. 6 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Joyce Mayes-Birk, citing negligence.

According to the complaint, King was driving through the intersection of North Illinois Street and Grimmig Road in Swansea on Aug. 3, 2013, when her vehicle was struck by Mayes-Birke, who was attempting to turn left onto North Illinois from Grimmig. King says she sustained injuries, and Mayes-Birke is accused of negligence and failing to yield right of way.

King is seeking more than $50,000 in damages. She is being represented in the case by attorney Eric W. Evans of Evans Blasi in Granite City.

Cook County Circuit Court Case No. 14L580.
