BELLEVILLE — A St. Clair County resident accuses the fire department of causing an accident.

Erica Harden filed a complaint on July 23 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Camp Jackson Fire Protection District and its employee John Mays, for allegedly not safely driving a fire truck.

According to the complaint, Mays drove a fire truck through a red light at an Illinois Route 157 intersection and hit Harden's vehicle. Harden claims she sustained severe injuries resulting in medical expenses, disability and loss of normal life.
