A woman is suing a driver she alleges ran a red light and caused a crash at an intersection in Belleville.

Paula Massey filed a complaint against Jo Ann Kettler in St. Clair County Circuit Court on Sep. 10.

The alleged crash happened Sept. 4, 2012, at the intersection of North Third and West A streets in Belleville. Massey says she was driving north on Third Street while Kettler was driving west on West A Street and "failed to stop at a red traffic signal and struck" her vehicle.

Massey says she received injuries to her neck, lower back and shoulders as a result of the crash.

Massey accuses Kettler of negligence and seeks more than $50,000 in damages for medical expenses, disability, pain, suffering, lost wages and reduced future earning capacity.

Attorney Michael Gras, with the Law Office of Christopher Cueto in Belleville, represents Massey.

St. Clair County Circuit Court case number: 14-L-632.
