A man alleges he suffered injuries when a driver allegedly ran a red light and struck his vehicle.
Fernando Valencia filed a lawsuit Sept. 16 in Jefferson County District Court against America Hernandez.
In his complaint, Valencia alleges he was driving south on state Highway 347 on Oct. 17, 2012, when Hernandez, who was driving west on 39th Street, ran a red light and struck Valencia's vehicle.
