By Robbie Hargett | Sep 24, 2015

An Alton woman is suing two Madison County women following a vehicle collision the three were involved in.

Gloria Teague filed a complaint on Aug. 31 in Madison County Circuit Court against Suzanne Crancer and Theresa Harrison, alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, on March 3, Teague was a passenger in Harrison's 2006 Buick Lucerne CX traveling southbound on Henry Street at its intersection with U.S. 67 (Landmarks Boulevard) in Alton. Crancer, driving her 2014 Ford Escape eastbound on U.S. 67 at the same intersection, allegedly ran a red light and collided with the passenger side of Harrison's vehicle.

The complaint states that Crancer was negligent in failing to obey a traffic signal and failing to yield the right-of-way to Harrison, among other negligent acts or omissions.

The complaint further states that Harrison was negligent in failing to reduce speed to avoid a collision and failing to keep a proper lookout, among other negligent acts or omissions.

As a result of the collision, Teague claims she sustained injuries to her arm, shoulder, hip, knee and spine, has suffered loss of a normal life, and has incurred medical expenses.

Teague seeks a judgment of more than $50,000 against each defendant, plus costs of the suit. She is represented by Michael P. Glisson and Timothy J. Chartrand of Williamson, Webster, Falb & Glisson in Alton.
