EDWARDSVILLE – A Highland man claims he was injured in a motorcycle accident when the driver allegedly struck a concrete mailbox.
Daniel Sheahan filed a complaint on July 12 in Madison County Circuit Court against Jacob Sheahan, alleging negligence.

As a result, Daniel Sheahan claims he suffered physical injuries, diminished quality of life and incurred medical bills.
