Judith E. Bertram filed the complaint against Nancy L. Alexander Oct. 26 in St. Clair County Circuit Court.
Bertram says she was pushing a shopping cart through the Deals store parking lot on Lincoln Trail in Fairview Heights on Dec. 16, 2008. Bertram says Alexander was driving a vehicle and hit the shopping cart, causing Bertram to fall.
