By The Madison County Record | Jul 18, 2016

EDWARDSVILLE — A motorist is suing another driver, alleging his negligence caused a crash that injured the plaintiff.

Angela Cross filed a lawsuit July 6 in Madison County Circuit Court against James Fairless alleging negligence in failing to keep his vehicle under control.

According to the complaint, on Dec. 4, 2014, Cross was driving a 2011 Ford Fusion southbound on state Route 111 near the intersection of North Bellwood Road in Bethalto City, when Fairless rear-ended her vehicle, causing a violent collision. The suit says the collision caused Cross to suffer bodily injuries, including to her back, neck, hips and knees, that resulted in great pain, mental anguish, disability and medical expenses. 

Cross alleges Fairless failed to keep proper lookout, failed to give proper signal or sound his horn, and failed to timely reduce speed and stop his vehicle.

Cross seeks a trial by jury, judgment of more than $50,000, plus legal costs. She is represented by attorney Michael P. Glisson of Williamson, Webster, Falb & Glisson in Alton.
