EDWARDSVILLE — A passenger alleges she was injured when another motorist ran a stop sign.

Michelle Hedger filed a complaint on Jan. 6, in the Madison County Circuit Court against Tracy Schaefer and Alexandra Nagy, alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 8, 2015, she was a passenger in a motor vehicle traveling in an easterly direction on East 4th Street. Hedger alleges the vehicle was stopped at a stop sign located at the intersection with Henry Street when the defendant's vehicle entered the intersection and collided with the plaintiff's vehicle.

As a result of the collision, the plaintiff claims she suffered physical injuries resulting in disability, mental distress and medical expenses.

The plaintiff alleges Nagy failed to maintain a proper lookout, disobeyed a stop sign and negligently failed to stop or changed the course of the automobile to avoid collision. Schaefer negligently and carelessly entrusted her vehicle to Nagy, the suit states.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendants for a monetary award for a sum of in excess of $50,000.00 and costs of this suit.

She is represented by Eric M. Terry of TorHoerman Law LLC in Edwardsville.
